President Chen Shui-bian narrowly won re-election Saturday, a day after he survived on attempt on his life. Chen won the presidential ballot with 50.12 percent of the vote, the Central Election Commission said. His opponent, Lien Chan, came away with 49.88 percent. About 13 million ballots were cast. Lien Chan claims the attack unfairly influenced the vote and wants it nullified. Chen Shui-bian was shot, wounded in the stomach while campaigning with Vice-President Annette Lu in the island's southern part, in the eve of elections. Lu also got wounded in the knee, but the injury was reported not to be life threatening. No arrests have been made yet.Politics » Be a reporter: Write and send your article Expats.bg All Are Welcome!
