Taiwan Quick Take: CEC touts three-in-one vote

STAFF WRITER WITH CNA

The Central Election Commission (CEC) has recommended that Taipei City's election committee hold the next mayoral, city councilor and borough administrator elections on the same day, CEC Deputy Secretary-General Teng Tien-you (鄧天佑) said yesterday. The city committee has set Dec. 9 as the date for two of the elections, with the borough administrator election scheduled for Dec. 30. Teng said the CEC thinks holding the events on the same day would save a great deal in personnel costs. However, it's up to the city committee whether or not it wants to follow the CEC's suggestion, Teng added.
