AIT expected DPP to get 40 seats; points to election system

I was a bit surprised at this particular revelation from the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), which said in a discussion with President Chen that they had expected the DPP to win 40 seats instead of 27. They said the difference was a result of the new election system. President Chen responded by saying that this election indicates the maturity of Taiwanese democracy: a win or a loss lasts only a moment, bu democratic development marches on.
