  1. Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen names former Premier Lai as running mate

    The ruling Democrative Progressive Party is seeking re-election and an absolute majority in the legislature.  Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has named as her running mate for 2020 elections a former prime minister who last year angered Beijing so badly with his support for the island’s formal independence that a major Chinese paper called for his arrest.
