Taiwan: Questions to Presidential Candidates

With the upcoming presidential election in Taiwan on March 22nd, televised debates will be held on February 24th and March 9th.  Following the Youtube example in the United States, at the first debate, two presidential candidates will answer 20 video questions selected from Peopo website[zh].  Voters in Taiwan are welcomed to make their own 30-second videos, and upload directly to the website.  So far hundreds of questions have been posted, with issues ranging from education reform, relations with China, infrastructure, economic development, environmental protection, death sentence abolition, foreign policies, nuclear energy, LGBT rights, and so on.
