New Kuomintang Alliance

The New Kuomintang Alliance (Chinese: 新國民黨連線; Hsin Kuomintang Lienhsien) was a faction of Kuomintang in the Republic of China on Taiwan, active late 20th century. Composed of mainly younger mainlanders, this faction was in favour of intra-party reform. It accused President Lee Teng-hui of autocratic tendencies and complained that the KMT was too corrupt. In August 1993, days before the 14th National Congress of Kuomintang, the New KMT Alliance broke away to form the Chinese New Party. This move was propelled by the resignation of Premier Hau Pei-tsun, whom New KMT Alliance members had viewed to be a counterbalance to Lee's power.
