recommended expelling Taipei City Councilor Tung Chung-yan (童仲彥) for damaging the party’s reputation amid accusations domestic violence and infidelity against him.

It forwarded the recommendation to the DPP Central Evaluation Committee, which is to meet on Feb. 22, DPP spokesperson Wang Min-sheng (王閔生) said.

“The review was swift, with committee members unanimously agreeing on the expulsion proposal,” Wang said.

If Tung is expelled, he would be barred from the party for five years. If he were later allowed to rejoin the party, he would not be allowed to participate in public or party elections for two years.    [FULL  STORY]
