Taiwan: KMT legislator recall moves to stage 2

At least 2% of voters signed a recall against Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Tsai Chin-lung, allowing the recall to move forward. This is part of the perfectly named "Appendectomy Project" -- KMT Legislator Alex Tsai is also facing a recall. 

 Issues include his support for nuclear energy, endorsement of importing agricultural products from China, and his opposition to raising the minimum wage. Petioners now need 13% of eligible voters (almost 40K) in 30 days.
