New Power Party (NPP) Chairman Chiu Hsien-chih (邱顯智) announced his resignation today at a press conference.

During the press conference, Chiu stated two main reasons for his decision to resign. He said he regretted over Freddy Lim's (林昶佐) departure from NPP despite his efforts in uniting the different voices within the party. He also took responsibility for the party's damaged reputation over the recent scandal about NPP legislator Kawlo Iyun Pacidal (高潞以用), who was accused of abusing her influence to obtain government funding.

"Obviously, my efforts have failed to convince our party members and facilitate effective dialogue between the different opinions in the party. I feel extremely regretful and I should bear the political responsibility for my failures," Chiu said to the press.

Chiu wished his successor, though not yet named, to finish the work he has left off and lead the NPP to win the 2020 elections.    [FULL  STORY]
