The impact of Taiwan’s presidential election results on US-China relations

After competing with Ko Wen-je of the Taiwan People’s Party and Hou Yu-ih of the Kuomintang Party, Lai Ching-te of the Democratic Progressive Party won Taiwan’s presidential election with 40.05% of the votes. The victory of Lai Ching broke the pattern of alternating party presidencies, which was based on the notion that no party could hold the presidency for two terms in a row; however, the Democratic Progressive Party managed to hold onto power for three terms in a row.

Even though Taiwan’s new president leans more toward the US and the West than China, the US is concerned about his possible adoption of a confrontational approach to China, as this could lead to tensions in the region, especially considering the new president’s hard-line stance towards China and the fact that he belonged to the “New Tide” faction within the party.
