HPU Professor Observes Midterm Elections In Taiwan

Posted on January 3, 2011.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 30, 2010 – Dr. Peng Deng, professor of history at High Point University, recently visited Taiwan as part of a group of scholars observing the island?s midterm elections.

The group, which consisted of scholars from the U.S., Canada, Australia, China and France, was invited by the Grand Alliance of the Three People’s Principles, and met with politicians from Taiwan’s Nationalist Party and Democratic Progress Party.

Additionally, the group observed mayoral and congressional races in five municipalities. After returning to HPU, Deng was able to share his experience with all of his classes.

“The election was by no means perfect, but it challenges all of us to be more honest and fair minded about what is going on in Taiwan,” says Deng.
