Taiwan: StateBuilding Party Legislator facing recall threats as revenge for Kaohsiung Mayor ouster

Taiwan Statebuilding Party (TSP) legislator Chen Po-Wei is facing a recall threat from the New Party, which has been seen as revenge for the removal of Kaohsiung's Mayor. The article notes that the party is claiming that Chen is a "bumbling buffoon who lacks the needed professional knowledge."

Petitioners would need 2000 signatures in the first stage and 20,000 in the second stage. Also, thanks to the "absentee veto" they would also need turnout to top 25% of registered voters for the recall to succeed.
