Taiwanese legislative election, 1989
Compared with the sixth supplementary election the number of new delegates to the Legislative Yuan had been increased from 100 to 129. Of these, 101 were to be elected directly representing Taiwan Province and the special municipalities of Taipei and Kaohsiung. The remaining 28 seats were to represent Mainland Chinese living on Taiwan. These delegates were appointed by the President after being advised by organizations representing the Mainland Chinese population on Taiwan.
By virtue of achieving more than 20 seats, the Democratic Progressive Party secured the prerogative to propose legislation in the Legislative Yuan.
