The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has decided to cancel some of the party's public rallies scheduled for next month in Taipei because of an expanding campaign aimed at pushing President Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) to resign, according to a DPP official. Deputy DPP Secretary-General Tsai Huang-liang (蔡煌瑯) explained that the canceled activities were organized as celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the DPP's founding and that the party had planned to take advantage of the events to campaign for its candidates in the year-end Taipei and Kaohsiung mayor elections. Despite the cancelations, Tsai said the DPP would still invite all the founders of the party to a celebration planned for Aug. 28 at Taipei's Grand Hotel, where the DPP was established in 1986.
