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

300,000 signatures are set to be handed in against Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yuto, with the petitions being handed in one day after the one year grace period from the beginning of his term. Petitioners seem to need about 228,000 -- 10% of city inhabitants.

Han is also 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.
