Lai Ching-te of Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is Taiwan's new president-elect, after a three-way election that will determine the self-ruled island's future stance towards China. Since its founding in the 1980s as an alliance of underground dissident groups, the DPP has now secured a third term in the presidential office, a first in Taiwan's short democratic history.

Taiwan voters re-elect anti-China ruling party

Voters in Taiwan defied a heavy pressure campaign from China, choosing Beijing’s least favored candidate as president Saturday in a win that will likely stoke further tensions between the island democracy and its communist neighbor.

“The Taiwanese people have successfully resisted efforts from external forces to influence this election,” Lai exulted in his acceptance speech.

The result gave the ruling Democratic Progressive Party its third straight term in the presidency.

“We have shown the world how much we cherish our democracy,” Lai said. “This is our unwavering commitment.”

US officials have said that Washington will uphold its longstanding policy toward Taiwan no matter who takes on the top job. The Biden administration will dispatch an unofficial delegation – including former senior officials – to Taipei following the election in keeping with past practice, according to senior officials.

The delegation visit “will be a signal, a very symbolic way of supporting Taiwan,” said T.Y. Wang, a professor at Illinois State University.

"We've written a new page for Taiwan's history of democracy," Lai, long the frontrunner in the polls, told reporters after both his opponents conceded defeat.

Lai said he would maintain the status quo in relations across the Taiwan Strait, but that he was "determined to safeguard Taiwan from threats and intimidation from China".

Kuomintang’s (KMT) presidential candidate Hou Yu-ih has bowed out of the 2024 Taiwan presidential election.

He delivered a rousing speech, conceding defeat to and congratulating his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) opponent, William Lai Ching-te.

Hou thanked his supporters and apologised for "disappointing" them.

He said: "Thank you everyone. With regard to the results of the election, I tried my best. Unfortunately, I disappointed everyone. I express my deepest apologies."

BRITISH FOREIGN MINISTER DAVID CAMERON
Cameron congratulated Lai and the DPP on his win and said he hoped Taiwan and China would renew efforts to resolve their differences peacefully.

"The elections today are testament to Taiwan’s vibrant democracy," he said in a statement. "I hope that the two sides of the Taiwan Strait will renew efforts to resolve differences peacefully through constructive dialogue, without the threat or use of force or coercion."

The first of the three, sponsored by California Republican Young Kim, supports including Taiwan as a member of the International Monetary Fund.

Sponsored by Pennsylvania Republican Dan Meuser, requires the US Treasury to push Beijing for greater transparency in its exchange rates at the IMF.

The first two bills passed the Republican-controlled House by voice vote, and Meuser’s bill passed 379-1. Now the bills must pass the full Democratic-controlled Senate before heading to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.

Wow 379-1. Thats why the two evils Xi & Putin able to unite both parties.

Speaking in support of Lucas’ bill, House Financial Services Committee chairman Patrick McHenry, a North Carolina Republican, said it would make China a “pariah in key organisations devoted to ensuring global economic stability”.

If the US effort succeeds, China would face exclusions similar to Russia after its invasion of Ukraine.

China, which claims the self-governed island of Taiwan as part of its territory and insists that it will be brought under Beijing’s control, has long voiced its opposition to the pro-independence DPP and viewed Lai and his running mate Hsiao Bi-khim with deep apprehension and mistrust. Now, China is rebuking any nation that dares to pay respect to Lai for his victory—or even to Taiwan for its successful democratic process.
