Quote:KMT names great-grandson of Chiang Kai-shek to run for Taipei mayor

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The Kuomintang (KMT) on Wednesday (May 18) named Legislator Chiang Wan-an (蔣萬安), a great-grandson of the late dictator Chiang Kai-shek, to run for mayor of Taipei City in the Nov. 26 election.

Chiang, 43, is a son of former Foreign Minister John Chiang (蔣孝嚴), who was born in China out of wedlock to Chiang Kai-shek’s son, Chiang Ching-kuo (蔣經國), and a woman surnamed Chang (章). He originally took his mother’s surname, but he and his family later changed their names to Chiang.

Chiang Wan-an, also known as Wayne Chiang, studied and practiced law in the United States before returning to Taiwan and winning a seat in the Legislative Yuan in 2016.

Wayne Kai-Shek sounds better.

Yahoo article on the situation.

Quote:Lawmaker Chiang Wan-an of the Kuomintang was seen as the likely winner by 37.8% of respondents in a survey published on Monday by the Liberty Times, a newspaper that generally backs the ruling Democratic Progressive Party.

The KMT’s Chiang graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, worked as a corporate lawyer in the US, and about a decade ago returned to Taiwan.

His main challenger is Chen, who was health minister from 2017 until earlier this year. Chen led Taiwan’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, hosting daily briefings.

Morgenthau bonds were these bonds that were exchanged directly from the federal reserve to Chiang Kai-Shek's nationalist government in China in return for Chiang kai-shek moving all nationalist China's gold into the federal reserve system.

There are still holders of these Chinese nationalist war bonds from the Chiang Kai-shek era which had hopes the communist gov't would redeem them but no such luck. Some of these people approached the Trump Administration to see what they could do about getting them redeemed. Trump basically said we'll look into it and AFAIK, nothing became of it.
