Taipei, March 15 (CNA) Tsai Ing-wen, former head of Taiwan's main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), on Saturday announced her bid to become party chief again in a challenge to current Chairman Su Tseng-chang. The DPP and Taiwan's society need to "take a step forward" or "be phased out," she told supporters. The party election will be held on May 25. Su, the incumbent, has indicated that he will run for re-election. Another former party boss Frank Hsieh has also announced his bid for the post. Tsai, 57, served as party chief from 2008 to 2012. She stepped down in February 2012, after losing the presidential election to Ma Ying-jeou. She is widely expected to run for president again in 2016. (By Justin Su and Jay Chen)
