BBC Chinese: Interviews with Tsai Ing-wen and James Soong on November 24, 25

The BBC‘s Chinese service is collecting online readers’ questions to Taiwan’s opposition leader and presidential nominee Tsai Ing-wen (Democratic Progressive Party, DPP). The Chinese Service’s director Li Wen will ask those questions – or some of them – in an interview with Tsai, on November 24.

One day later, on November 25, Li will interview the People-First Party’s (PFP) founder and presidential nominee Soong Chu-yu (James Soong). Soong and his running-mate Lin Ruey-shiung (林瑞雄) officially joined the presidential race earlier this week.  Taiwan’s Central Election Commission confirmed the PFP presidential ticket on November 15, as Soong and Lin had gathered more than a sufficient number of endorsement signatures to run in the presidential elections on January 14. There, too, the BBC is collecting online readers’ questions.
