The pundit recently stated that an important political figure had informed Clara Chou that President Ma Ying-jeou's campaign staff accepted money in campaign funds from Ting Hsin.

TAIPEI - Taiwan's ruling Kuomintang party (KMT) has named Vice President Wu Den-yih as acting chairman, the party said on Wednesday, in the wake of a drubbing in weekend elections that plunged it into its deepest crisis in more than a decade.

Wu's appointment comes after President Ma Ying-jeou stepped down as party chief to take responsibility for the defeat. Ma will remain president until the end of his second, and final, four-year term in 2016.
