Three public presidential policy presentations scheduled
The Central Election Commission says the first televised policy presentation for candidates contesting the January 13 presidential election will take place on 20 December.
The candidates will be able to present their policies in three televised sessions. The first of which is scheduled for 19:00 on 20 December. The second will be held at 14:00 on 26 December, and the third at 19:00 on 28 December.
A policy presentation session is scheduled for vice presidential candidates at 19:00 on 22 December.
The presentations will see each candidate given 10 consecutive minutes to present their views in each round. While it's not the same as debates where candidates can quickly respond to the claims of rivals, they can respond to comments another candidate makes in their allotted 10 minutes.
The policy presentations will be broadcast live by Taiwan's four terrestrial TV channels and on the election commission's website.
