running mate, former Council of Labor Affairs minister Jennifer Wang (王如玄), yesterday officially registered their ticket at the Central Election Commission, as labor activists demonstrated outside.

Chu and Wang, accompanied by KMT Secretary-General Lee Shu-chuan (李四川), Deputy Secretary-General Chiang Cheng-yen (江政彥) and Culture and Communications Committee director-general Lin Yi-hua (林奕華), completed the registration process at about 9:05am.
