Taiwan Premier Resigns Over Party's Landslide Defeat

Saturday, 29 Nov 2014 07:24 AM

Taiwan's premier resigned Saturday after the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) party suffered a landslide defeat at the island's biggest ever local elections.

Jiang Yi-huah announced that he had stepped down at a brief press conference, saying that he took "political responsibility" for the party's heavy losses -- unofficial results showed the KMT had lost in five out of Taiwan's six municipalities.
