The Green Party Taiwan (Chinese: 台灣綠黨; pinyin: Táiwān Lǜ Dǎng; Taiwanese: Tâi-ôan Le̍k Tóng) is a political party in Taiwan established on 25 January 1996. Although the party is sympathetic to Taiwan nationalism and shares a number of centre-left positions with the Pan-Green Coalition, the party emphasizes campaigning primarily on social and environmental issues. The party is not a member of, and should not be confused with, the Pan-Green Coalition. Green Party Taiwan is a member of the Asia-Pacific Greens Federation and participates in the Global Greens.

List of chairpersons

In the 2014 local elections, the party won two seats. Wang Hao-yu was elected to the Taoyuan City council and Jay Chou to the Hsinchu County Council.[4]

There, the party collected 35.76% of the party votes due to its strong antinuclear stance.
