Taiwan Quick Take: DPP wants capital moved


The secretary-general of the Democratic Progressive Party said yesterday that the party would help push for the relocation of the capital to central or southern Taiwan and that the issue could be determined via a national referendum. Nearly 70 legislators signed a proposal last Monday to relocate the capital away from Taipei to help achieve the goal of balanced development in the country and to "better reflect the true identity of Taiwan and allow the international community to hear more of Taiwan's voices."
