Ruling Nationalists formally nominate pro-China candidate

TAIPEI - Taiwan's ruling Nationalist Party formally and unanimously confirmed Hung Hsiu-chu, the pro-China deputy parliamentary speaker, as its presidential candidate at a convention on July 19 attended by 1,200 delegates.

     The nomination of a candidate who supports Taiwan's eventual unification with China at some point and lacks executive experience reflects ongoing confusion at the top of the Nationalist Party, or Kuomintang (KMT).
