Kaohsiung election ruled valid

The night before last years' Kaohsiung mayoral election last year, DPP candidate Chen Chu (陳菊) called a press conference on the night before the election to show video of someone buying votes for the KMT candidate, Huang Chun-ying (黃俊英).

After Chen Chu won, the KMT sued, saying this amounted to a campaign event, and that Chen Chu had violated the election law. The Kaohsiung District Court on June 15 ruled in favor of Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) mayoral candidate Huang Chun-ying.

Today, the appeal has turned out in Chen Chu's favor. There should still be one appeal decision left before the case is finally decided.

As Raj pointed out, this was the alst appeal. Case closed.

Nope, that's it. In this case there was only one appeal - the KMT has begrudgingly accepted the verdict, as there was nothing more that they could do.

Good news for the DPP.
