The Green Party Taiwan has been in contact with the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and hopes to form an alliance with it and other minor parties for next year’s legislative elections to secure more seats, Taoyuan City Councilor Wang Hao-yu (王浩宇) said on Saturday.

The Green Party-SDP Alliance in the 2016 legislative elections pooled their votes and reached the 2 percent threshold needed to be allotted at-large seats in next year’s elections, said Wang, a former Green Party convener.

Although the alliance ended, the parties recently began discussing collaborating again for the Jan. 11 elections, but he hopes the Taiwan Statebuilding Party, formerly known as Taiwan Radical Wings, would be included, Wang said.

“In the best-case scenario, the three would form an alliance,” Wang said
