--- Die Wahl in Taiwan ist weiter umstritten: Taiwan's newly reelected president, Chen Shui-bian, acceded Tuesday to opposition demands for a swift recount of Saturday's contested vote and pledged to abide by the results. Acting on the decision, Chen's Democratic Progressive Party proposed amending Taiwan's election law to make any vote won by a margin of less than 1 percent subject to a quick recount. The revision would be retroactive, applying to the vote Saturday in which Chen defeated his Nationalist Party opponent, Lien Chan, by only 29,000 out of about 13 million ballots. "I will accept it 100 percent, absolutely accept it," Chen said in a televised address, his first appearance in public since the vote.
