A group of activist organizations yesterday established a “Headquarters for Voting
Out Candidates” (落選總部) in New Taipei City, announcing Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislative candidates Liao Cheng-ching (廖正井), Chang Ching-chung (張慶忠) and Wu Yu-sheng (吳育昇) as their primary targets.
The headquarters — on Jingping Road in the city’s Jhonghe District (中和) — was jointly founded by four activist groups, including The People Rule, the Taiwan March, the Appendectomy Project and the Congressional Investigation Corps.
“Last year’s Appendectomy Project recall campaign, which was aimed at ousting unqualified legislators, successfully prompted the second recall referendum in the nation’s history,” Appendectomy Project spokesperson Lin Zu-yi (林祖儀) said at the headquarters’ launch ceremony. [FULL STORY]
