Fifteen DPP legislative hopefuls registered in 12 districted seats and three at-large seats on Monday. Registration will run until Friday.
Notably absent from the first day's registration was anyone in Kaohsiung City. Seven current Taipei area legislators also did not register, especially surprising given that the Taipei City branch of the DPP had heard from interested legislators about their intention to register in Taipei City Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Districts 6, 7 and 8 not open to registration since nobody in the DPP wants to run in Da'an, Xinyi or Wenshan and the party will need to assign candidates to run there.
DPP Taipei branch chair Lee Cheng-yi (李政毅) recapped who was interested in what Taipei city seats. Dist. 1 (Beitou/Tianmu): Chen Cheng-teh (陳正德), Lin Cho-shui (林濁水), Kao Chien-chih (高建智); Dist. 2 (Shihlin/Datong): Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴) and Wang Shih-Cheng (王世堅); Dist. 3 (Zhongshan/N. Songshan) Kuo Cheng-liang (郭正亮); Dist. 4 (Neihu/Nangang): possibly Tommy Hsu (徐國勇) ; Dist. 5 Duan Yi-kan (段宜康).
