Tsai Ing-wen wins DPP Nomination Poll

There is no formal announcement from the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) yet, but according to the San Francisco Chronicle (SFC),

Taiwan opposition leader Tsai Ing-wen, who has moderated her party’s policies toward mainland China, secured its presidential nomination Wednesday by narrowly winning an island-wide telephone poll.

The benchmark was about who among the candidates for the DPP’s presidential nomination would be the most likely one to defeat president Ma Ying-jeou (KMT) in the presidential elections next year.

Some objections to the SFC report’s accuracy can be found on Michael Turton‘s blog.

President Ma himself was nominated by the KMT’s Central Standing Committee as his party’s presidential candidate, also on Wednesday, reports Radio Taiwan International (RTI).
