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. In 2015, Lee expressed interest in running for the Kuomintang chairmanship, but his candidacy, and that of four others, was rejected. The next year, he launched another bid for the party leadership, finishing third in a field of four candidates with 7,604 votes.
Lee died from jumping out of his apartment building on September 28, 2016, aged 64.
