The Faith And Hope League (FHL; Chinese: 信心希望聯盟; pinyin: Xìnxīn xīwàng liánméng) is a Christian political party in Taiwan formed in 2015. The party emerged from the fifth "Conference of National Affairs Forum of Taiwan Pastors" hold by Taiwan Christian Union.[1] The party is led by presidium, consisting of Chen Chih-hung, a pastor of Taiwan Lutheran Church; Joanna Lei, former legislator of New Party; Benson Wang, a businessman and member of Taichung Banner Church; Chung Tung-chieh, pastor of Sanmin Church, a church of the Taiwan Lutheran Church in Kaohsiung; and Chang Hsin-yi, pastor of City Spring of Life Full Gospel Church.

The FHL nominated 16 candidates in the 2016 general election, 10 for Constituencies and 6 party list, but failed to gain any seats.[2]

Platform[edit]

The FHL formed in order to oppose the legalization of same-sex marriage, and drive a referendum petition of "family protection" that only allow the husband-wife relationship, consanguinity and familial ethics, and cannot be passed without a national vote.[3]

History[edit]

The party was established on 6 September 2015, which is for running the proportional seats in the Legislative Yuan.
