Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) was sworn in as KMT Chairwoman this afternoon. President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), Vice President Wu Den-yih (吳敦義), and former KMT Chairmen Lien Chan (連戰) and Wu Po-hsiung (吳伯雄) attended the ceremony. 

The KMT held its chairmanship by-election on March 26 and Hung Hsiu-chu was elected as KMT chairwoman, becoming the first woman to lead the party. She received 78,827 of the 140,358 votes cast, or 56.16 percent of the vote. 

Former Deputy Legislative Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu stated in her inaugural speech that the KMT’s defeat in January’s general elections should be regarded as an opportunity for the KMT to deeply reflect and reform. As long as the KMT engaged in earnest soul-searching, Hung stated, the people would give the KMT a chance to make a comeback. However, if the KMT should continue to conduct itself in old, inefficient ways, and remain detached from the grass roots, with infighting lingering on, then the KMT would definitely be relegated to the dustbin of history, Hung issued a caveat.
