Taipei, July 20 (CNA) The pro-independence Formosa Alliance formed a political party on Saturday,

Lo Jen-kuei (羅仁貴)

saying that it hoped to field at least 10 candidates in the legislative election next January and give independence-leaning voters an alternative to the current ruling party.

The Formosa Alliance will not compete in the 2020 presidential election, said Lo Jen-kuei (羅仁貴), a minister in the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, who was elected chairman of the new party.

He said the Formosa Alliance was formed not out of dissatisfaction with the performance of President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) but rather to give pro-independence voters a choice other than her Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

In fact, Lo said, it would be a blessing for the Taiwanese people if the DPP won the 2020 presidential election.    [FULL  STORY]
