TAIPEI Nike Free Run 5.0 Flyknit Womens Grey Online , Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- Taiwan residents began voting in the island's leadership and legislature elections at 8 a.m. Saturday and the polls will close at 4 p.m.


In a three-way race, Eric Chu of the Kuomintang (KMT), the island's ruling party since 2008, is competing for Taiwan's next leader with major opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen and the minority People First Party (PFP) chairman James Soong.

Each eligible voter will cast two ballots in the legislature election -- one for a candidate representing the voter's district and the other for a political party to decide how many at-large seats each party can obtain.


Voting results will be announced before 10 p.m., according to the island's election commission.
