A new political party has emerged in Taiwan with an unusual and singular platform – mahjong. Mahjong the Greatest Party wants the centuries-old Chinese tile game, which is especially popular among the elderly on the island, to be declared a "legitimate recreation" and allow players to legally gamble. As Taiwan hurtles towards becoming a "super aged" society, Mahjong the Greatest Party claims that the game can help senior citizens improve their quality of life and bring them happiness.
