Award-winning screenwriter and author Neil Peng (馮光遠) said on Sunday via a video uploaded on Facebook that he would leave the New Power Party (NPP). NPP, Taiwan’s third largest political party, was founded by civil activists in 2015. Peng said that he is not satisfied with the current party leader Huang Kuo-chang (黃國昌) and the NPP’s original purpose has shifted under the influence of Huang, who Peng says holds all power. Peng also said in the video that he does not wish his hard work and contributions to the party be “reaped by specific people,” thus his decision to leave the party. Peng has been on the NPP leadership team since September 2015.    [FULL  STORY]
