TAIPEI : Nationalist Drive

August 17, 1993

President Lee Teng-hui is expected to further consolidate his authority within the ruling Nationalist Party at its 14th National Congress, now under way in Taipei.

The meeting, the first of its kind to be held in five years, is expected to elect a new 210-member Central Committee and a smaller but more directly powerful Central Standing Committee. Lee is expected to be reelected as party chairman.

The congress comes just days after the Nationalist Party suffered its first split in more than 40 years, with six legislators breaking off to form the New Party. The Nationalists are expected to use the congress to stress that their party is becoming more democratic.
