TAIPEI, Taiwan — The opposition Kuomintang amended regulations for internal party elections on Wednesday, following criticism from Central Standing Committee member Yao Chiang-lin (姚江臨) and a recommendation from the party’s Miaoli County division.
Yao had called the previous voter eligibility rules for internal party elections “unreasonable.”
In a statement released Wednesday, the KMT said that it would publicly release membership figures regularly to show its commitment to a “fair and transparent” election for the party’s chairmanship and representatives.
The statement explained that the party has implemented stronger administrative procedures on party membership applications and voter eligibility.
The number of members eligible to vote will be published every Tuesday and Friday, with the statistics updated until Jan. 20. [FULL STORY]
