外文标题：Taiwan's premier resigns after ruling party loses in local elections
TAIPEI: Taiwan's premier announced his resignation on Saturday after a candidate backed by the pro-independence opposition party was elected as the next mayor of Taipei, ending the ruling Kuomintang's 16-year hold on the capital.
The Kuomintang (KMT) lost seats islandwide in the local elections, the first chance for voters to make their views felt since thousands of young people occupied parliament in March in protest at a planned trade pact calling for closer ties with Beijing.
Premier Jiang Yi-huah, in a hastily called news conference, said his resignation had been accepted by President Ma Ying-Jeou.
