    Background: TAIPEI, TAIWAN

    President Chiang Ching-Kuo of Taiwan and Vice-President Lee Teng-Hui were both formally inaugurated for their new six-year terms of office in Taipei on May 19. President Chiang had been unanimously nominated by the ruling Kuomintang, or Nationalist Party, to lead the Nationalist Chinese Government. His nominated Vice-President also received unanimous approval from the party. The selection of Taiwan-born Mr. Lee is seen as a reaffirmation of the 74-year old President's policy of bringing more native Taiwanese into high government office. For many years the Taiwanese have complained that senior posts were being monopolised by mainland Chinese, who fled to Taiwan after the 1949 Communist takeover of their homeland.
