Taiwan’s opposition chair to run for president again
Stepping up to the podium, Taiwan's opposition party chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen made an important announcement that she will run for president in the 2016 race. Her candidacy was long expected and she's believed to have a strong chance of winning, according to opinion polls. Tsai ran in 2012, but lost to incumbent President Ma Ying-jeou from the ruling party KMT. She is expected to stand a much better chance this time because of widespread voter dissatisfaction with the government’s handling of a host of issues, from the food safety scandals to the income gap and high housing prices.
