Taiwan's leader Ma Ying-jeou is due to step down as the chair of the ruling Kuomintang party later today.
In making the move, he says he's taking responsibility for his party's poor showing in this past weekend's local elections.
KMT vice-Chair Hung Hsiu-chu is expected to be named acting-chair until the party holds a new leadership election.
That's not expected to take place until January at the earliest.
Saturday's election saw the Kuomintang win just 6 out of 22 municipalities and counties.
The 64-year old Ma Ying-Jeou has led the KMT since 2009.
He had two more years to go in his second and final term as Taiwan's leader.
