Two political groups in Taiwan are asking the Central Election Commission hold televised debates and presentations for legislator-at-large candidates. Representatives from the Taiwan Renewal Party and the Citizen Congress Watch submitted a petition to the Commission on Monday. An answer is expected within two days.
