Historyedit

The New Party was formed out of a split from the then-ruling Kuomintang KMT by members of the New Kuomintang Alliance on August 22, 19931 Members of the Alliance had accused KMT Chairman Lee Teng-hui of autocratic tendencies and moving the party away from Chinese reunification Co-founders of the New Party included Chen Kuei-miao2 Originally, the party wanted to keep the name of the faction, but was prevented from doing so due to the similarity of names The name "New Party" was seemingly inspired by the contemporary electoral success of the Japan New Party "Nihon Shintō"; see Politics of Japan

In the mid-1990s, the New Party attracted support from the KMT old guard as well as young urban professionals The New Party was aided by former Finance Minister Wang Chien-shien and former Environmental Protection Administration Director Jaw Shaw-kong, who had charismatic and clean images

In the 2000 presidential election, the party nominated writer and dissident Li Ao who ran a spirited but token campaign In the election, most members of the party supported James Soong, and in fact both Li Ao and the chairman of the New Party encouraged people to do so In the 2001 Legislative Yuan election, the party only won 1 seat in Kinmen

In the 2006 municipal elections, the New Party made significant gains, seating over a dozen members into public office The New Party also gained four seats in Taipei Major private offices

Since the 2008 Legislative Yuan elections, the party hasn't won any seats
