TAIWAN'S GOVERNING PARTY NOMINATES PRESIDENT

Taiwan's governing party Sunday unanimously nominated President Lee Teng-hui as its candidate for president, virtually ensuring that he will gain a six-year term. All 180 members of the Nationalist Party's Central Committee stood up to approve the nomination of Mr. Lee, the former vice president who succeeded President Chiang Ching-kuo when he died in 1988.

Lee, the first native Taiwanese to head the party and government, is expected to be approved by the National Assembly, or electoral college, when it meets March 20 to pick the president.
