Taiwan: DPP candidate wins replacement race October 23 recall seat

It what was seen as a double-loss for the KMT (including the Lim recall), DPP's Lin Ching-yi won the replacement race for the seat previously held by Chen Po-Wei (pro-independence Taiwan Statebuilding Party). Chen Po-Wei was ousted in a recall election on October 23 vote, 77,899-73,433 looking for removal

Lin won 88,752-80,912 for Yen Kuan-heng.

The KMT is supporting the recall and has made it an issue in the ongoing difficulties with China. This is also seen as part of a "revenge recalls" over the ouster of Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-Yuto.
