[Reporter Xie Jieyu/Nantou Report] After a fierce battle, the results of the Nantou county magistrate election were announced. Although the Democratic Progressive Party’s county magistrate candidate Cai Peihui tried to overturn it, he still lost in the end. The Kuomintang county magistrate candidate Xu Shuhua was elected with more than 130,000 votes The 19th Nantou County Magistrate is also the first female county magistrate since Nantou was founded 72 years ago.

Nantou County has not changed the party in power for 17 years so far. Xu Shuhua’s election now means that the Blue Army will continue to dominate Nantou’s one-party dominance and will continue to rule after taking over the Kuomintang county magistrate Lin Mingqin. At about 100,000 votes, Xu Shuhua was short of more than 30,000 votes, which was more than the 97,925 votes of Hong Guohao, the last DPP county magistrate candidate. It is glorious to lose.

Cai Peihui, a candidate for Nantou county magistrate of the Democratic Progressive Party, was defeated in the county magistrate election. The picture shows the voting situation.
