Three of Taiwan's presidential candidates will take part in a televised climate policy debate next month.


The event's organisers, Greenpeace Taiwan and the International Climate Development Institute say the debate will take place on 21 October, and that the nominees of Taiwan's three largest political parties have agreed to attend.

The groups say Vice President Lai Ching-te of the DPP, Hou Yu-ih of the KMT, and Ko Wen-je of the TPP will each take questions from representatives of the media, academia and the business world, as well as questions submitted online by members of the public.


But they say due to time constraints, however, the candidates may not be able to respond to each other's answers or otherwise engage in back-and-forth debate and the groups say the two other candidates in the presidential race, Foxconn founder Terry Gou and former Tainan County Magistrate Su Huan-chih, could also be invited, depending on how their efforts to collect signatures and qualify for the ballot are going.
