DPP elects a new chairman

l  As expected, former Premier Su Tseng-chang was elected the new chairman of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on May 27. Though Su was able to capture 55,894 votes, or 50.47%, it was not an easy victory for the former premier.

l  Amidst all the changes taking place in Taiwan’s domestic political environment, there are three major challenges confronting the DPP under Su: (1) party unity; (2) policy reorientation, particularly on cross-Strait relations; and (3) inter-party relations. In addition, Su needs to begin preparations for the “seven-in-one” elections scheduled for late 2014.
