Taipei, Legislative by-elections for seats to be vacated by lawmakers who won the recent local government head elections in Tainan, Changhua and Kinmen will be held March 16, the Central Election Commission (CEC) announced Tuesday.
One election will be held for the seat representing Tainan's second electoral district, which will be left vacant by Huang Wei-che (???), who was elected as the city's new mayor during the Nov. 24 local government elections.
The other election will fill the seat representing Changhua's first electoral district after Wang Hui-mei (???) became the county's magistrate-elect.
The same will also apply to Kinmen, where a seat will be left vacant by Yang Cheng-wu (???) after he won the outlying county's magistrate race.
The three legislators will officially take their new offices Dec. 25, according to the CEC.
Under the Civil Servants Election and Recall Act, a by-election has to be held within three months of a legislative seat being vacated when more than one year remains in the term to be served.
The next legislative elections are in January 2020 alongside the next presidential election.
Those seeking to run in the by-elections need to register their candidacies from Jan. 14-18, according to the election rules.
