ABSTRACT
The article reports on the recent political developments in Taiwan. The race to succeed Chen Shui-bian as leader of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is heating up, with four main contenders hoping to take over the DPP presidential candidacy from Chen. The current favourite for the top position is the newly installed premier and former DPP chairman, Frank Hsieh. As head of a minority government, following the DPP's failure to gain a majority in December's parliamentary elections, Hsieh has pledged to seek compromises with the opposition.
