data for Hung Hsiu-chu in 1989

Solidarity.tw has written a couple of posts looking at Hung Hsiu-chu’s 1995, 2001, and 2004 election results. He did not look at her 1989 and 1992 results since those are not listed on the Central Election Commission website. Luckily, I just happen to have those missing data, just in case he or anyone else wants to look at the earlier elections. The Election Study Center’s website has  the 1992 data. I have put the 1989 data into a handy-dandy spreadsheet. For non-Chinese readers, Hung Hsiu-chu is the candidate who got 53551 votes. No extra points for guessing which township is her home base of Yonghe. (Candidates marked 國自 were not nominated by the KMT but wrote in KMT under their party membership when registering. In 1989, the electoral law did not require any proof of party nomination, and candidates were allowed to fill in whatever they wished. That changed in 1992 with the introduction of a party list tier.) 1989 Taipei County LY by town Have fun!

    Chao Shao-kang in 1992. Wow. Enough votes for six people!

      It’s not a coincidence that they formed the New Party eight months later. Look at Wang Chien-hsuan in Taipei north, too. On election night, the New KMT Alliance (who supported Premier Hau) celebrated a big victory while the Wisdom Coalition (which supported President Lee) nursed its losses. (In Taipei County, Wu Zi 吳梓 was the most notable Wisdom Coalition loser.) It was a Pyrrhic victory, though. The KMT local factions allied with the DPP to force Hau out, and LTH replaced him with Lien Chan. The New Party split away soon after.

    I see Ker Chien-ming 柯建銘 got 33% in Hsinchu City all the way back in 1992. He might just have a shot there this time.

      Hsinchu City used to have a strong opposition. Back in 1985, the Tangwai candidate got 48% in the mayoral race. I think the DPP’s shift away from democratization and toward Taiwan nationalism in the late 1980s and early 1990s really hurt it in Hsinchu City.
