Taiwan's richest man Terry Gou says he would cede control of tech giant Foxconn to a committee, leaving the Apple-supplier in uncharted waters while he runs for president.
Gou says he will strengthen the diplomatic ties between Taiwan and the US if he is elected.
Gou's announcement created a market boom for Foxconn.
Gou says Chinese sea goddess Mazu has backed his wish to run for presidency.
Foxconn is the world's biggest contract electronics maker and assembles Apple's iPhones as well as gadgets for other international brands.
Gou, a supporter of the Beijing-friendly opposition Kuomintang (KMT) party, said he would follow the party's nomination procedure "if I were to join the KMT's primary".
