Huang Shan-shan tops TPPs legislator-at-large list
The Taiwan People's Party has released its legislator-at-large nominees for January's elections. Former Taipei Deputy Mayor Huang Shan-shan tops the 34-person list.
The party's presidential nominee Ko Wen-je said Huang proved to be "an efficient worker" when she served as his deputy during his tenure as mayor of Taipei. He also praised the party's number 2 pick, former New Power Party lawmaker Huang Kuo-chang for his work uncovering corruption while in office.
Huang resigned from the NPP last week to be eligible to be included in the TPP's party list. Surrogacy advocate Chen Zhao-zi is the TPP's No. 2 pick on its party list.
Ko says although he asked Terry Gou if he'd like the top position on the list, that offer was declined.
