The recall effort against Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yuto (who recently lost the presidential race), has moved to the second stage. Petitioners needed to get signatures of 1% of the city, and have gotten that. They had 28,560 verified and the needed 22,814.
Now, petitioners need 10% of eligible voters to sign (about 230,000).
Han was the Kuomintang Presidential candidate, and was 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.
