Taiwan: Signatures to be handed in against Kaohsiung Mayor/Kuomintang Presidential candidate

Petitioners claim to have gathered the 300,000 signatures needed to get Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yuto on the ballot (they seem to need about 228,000 -- 10% of city inhabitants). Han was also just nominated as the Kuomintang Presidential candidate, and is being threatened with a recall following flooding in the town (though presumably this may be part of the presidential political wrangling). There is an absentee voter provision -- 25% of eligible voters must cast ballots for the recall to count.

Update: Petitioners claim to have enough signatures to get on the ballot.
