Lee Hsin (Chinese: 李新; July 16, 1953 – September 28, 2017) was a Taiwanese politician. He has served on the Taipei City Council since 1998. Lee joined the 2006 campaign led by Shih Ming-teh which attempted to force the resignation of President Chen Shui-bian.[1] In 2015, Lee expressed interest in running for the Kuomintang chairmanship, but his candidacy, and that of four others, was rejected.[2] The next year, he launched another bid for the party leadership, finishing third in a field of four candidates with 7,604 votes.[3]

Lee died from jumping out of his apartment building on September 28, 2016, aged 64.
