Taipei, July 10 (CNA) The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) passed its first list of legislative candidates recruited for difficult electoral districts in the 2020 race Wednesday, moving one step closer to its goal of completing the party's list of regional legislative candidates by July.

The recruited candidates include DPP Legislator Tsai Shih-ying (蔡適應) for the Keelung City electoral district, former Hsinchu City Councilor Cheng Hung-huei (鄭宏輝) for the Hsinchu City electoral district, and DPP Legislator Chen Ying (陳瑩), a member of the indigenous Puyuma tribe, for the plains aboriginal electoral district.

Their recruitments were passed by the DPP's Central Executive Committee (CEC) during a meeting that was presided over by DPP Chairman Cho Jung-tai (卓榮泰).

The three districts are among the 20 electoral districts listed by the DPP as "difficult" ones, as the party received less than 42.5 percent of the votes there in the previous legislative elections in 2016.
