The GIO held a press conference yesterday at which it stated that whether "evening entertainments" could be broadcast was a matter for the CEC.

President Chen started to campaign with his Premier Voyage of the Century group on Nov 1. In mid-November his campaign events started to be broadcast on TVBS and FTV. He has planned to broadcast over 40 events around Taiwan before Dec 1.

Meanwhile, the KMT, PFP and DPP have broadcast party political advertisements since mid-October.
