Taipei, July 8 (CNA) The Pingtung District Court on Wednesday upheld the election of
Pingtung County Council member Hung Tzu-chien (洪慈綪) after finding that there was insufficient evidence to find her guilty of vote buying.
Hung and Chen Lung-chin (陳隆進), head of Liouciou Township in Pingtung County, had been indicted for buying votes to get elected in local government elections held in late November 2014.
Chen was found guilty of the charges in a separate trial earlier this week, and his election as Liouciou Township chief was invalidated. [FULL STORY]
