TAIWAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2016

With only a week to go, the leader of the China-skeptic Democratic Progressive Party TSAI Ing-wen was on track to win the Taiwan Presidential Election. Citizens placed strong hopes in Taiwan's first female president, trusting that she would bring economic reforms, bolster defense policies, and negotiate the territory's position with China. After eight years of governance by the pro-China Kuomintang Party, TSAI's win may redefine the tensions between China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
