Recorded on January 15, 2008
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium
Taiwan's citizens will go to the polls on January 12 to elect a
new Legislative Yuan (usually called the LY), the island republic's
parliament. It will be the first election under an entirely
new system, where the LY's seats have been reduced by half.
Voters will get two ballots, one for candidates in the district in
which they live, and one for party preference. In addition,
two contentious referenda will be placed before the
electorate. Join us as our experts examine, dissect and
evaluate the results of this significant vote.
