Chen Shui-bian was voted into Taiwan's presidential office today. He ran against rival Lien Chan, who is friendlier towards China. Lien Chan refused to accept results that he nearly lost the election. He has demanded that all 13,000 polling stations be impounded and recounted.

Ny Times

"This is an unfair election with a lot of question marks," Lien Chan, the Nationalist Party candidate said to his supporters. Chan beliefs that, similarly to Spain, the attack upon Shui-bian in the races final hours created more support. Mr. Lien had been winning the election by six percentage points, until results from many other precincts were delivered.

The assassination attempt from a day prior is fraught with many oddities and investigation continues.
