The TSU has not given up on the idea of winning district representation, and it is preparing to nominate five candidates, as it seeks to cooperate with the Democratic Progressive Party, Lin said.

In Taipei, the party is eyeing TSU Taipei City Councilor Chen Chien-ming’s (陳建銘) daughter, Chen Si-yu, (陳思宇) to run in the Beitou (北投) and Shilin (士林) districts and Hsiao Ya-tan (蕭亞譚) for the Nangang (南港) and Neihu (內湖) districts.
