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.


Turnout for the supplementary election was 75,5%. Of the 101 directly elected delegates, 72 belonged to the Kuomintang, 21 to Democratic Progressive Party and 8 were independents.

By virtue of achieving more than 20 seats, the Democratic Progressive Party secured the prerogative to propose legislation in the Legislative Yuan.
