The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) says the mechanism and timetable for
the party’s 2020 presidential primary must remain as it is.
The DPP has already pushed back its original primary schedule over a month. The move is intended to allow more time for mediation between two rival candidates, President Tsai Ing-wen and former Premier William Lai. Tsai is seeking reelection, but Lai has launched a challenge to her incumbency.
