Taipei, July 28 (CNA) The national congress of the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) approved Sunday a revision to its party charter that separates the positions of the Republic of China president and the party chairperson, previously held concurrently by the same person when the party was in power.

Delegates approved the removal of part of Article 17 of the KMT charter which stated that the president if a party member shall assume the party chairpersonship, until he or she steps down as president.

The KMT held its 20th national congress at Banqiao Stadium in New Taipei Sunday, at which the main focus was the formal nomination of Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) as the party's official candidate for the 2020 presidential election.

Following the amendment, the KMT chairperson will now be chosen through an election with a four-year tenure.    [FULL  STORY]
