KMT, TPP agree to collaborate in legislative elections

  • The heads of Taiwan’s Kuomintang (KMT) and the Taiwan People’s Party (TPP) have agreed to collaborate in the January 13 elections with the aim of maximizing seats in the Legislature and countering the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to prevent “one-party democratic rule.”. The cooperation between the KMT and TPP is seen as a move to unify the opposition against the DPP in the upcoming elections.
  • However, they made no progress in selecting the “strongest opposition presidential candidate” during their meeting.
  • The parties agreed to deepen Taiwan’s democratic development and ensure there’s no “one-party monopoly” in the country. They also discussed future cross-strait relations, emphasizing that any dialogue should be based on the Republic of China Constitution and related Taiwan laws. Additionally, they proposed that Taiwan’s next president should report to the Legislative Yuan in the future.
  • They will continue talks on other issues, including creating a joint presidential ticket, at a later date.
