Taiwan’s Chen Wins Poll, Boost On China Stance
From Reuters, via The New York Times:
Although the National Assembly poll was held for the sole purpose of ratifying constitutional reforms already approved by parliament, relations with China dominated the agenda as the vote followed bridge-building visits by opposition leaders to the mainland.
The DPP won 42.52 percent of votes to affirm its standing as Taiwan’s largest political party, figures from the Central Election Commission showed. The main opposition Kuomintang (Nationalist Party) finished with 38.92 percent.
