KMT expels Hsinchu County chief

The ruling Kuomintang expelled Hsinchu County Magistrate Cheng Yung-chin and his wife yesterday for campaigning on behalf of a breakaway candidate for the Dec. 5 county election.
The official KMT candidate for county magistrate is lawmaker Chiu Ching-chun, for almost two decades a bitter rival of Cheng.
As a result, the incumbent threw his full support behind Hsinchu County Council Speaker Chang Pi-chin, who is running as an independent against Chiu. Cheng's wife serves as chairwoman of Chang's campaign headquarters.
