What's at stake in Taiwan's election?

"Voters in Taiwan heading to the polls eleventh of January two elected president to appoint a new batch of national lawmakers so president sign one is seeking second term in office meanwhile center-left Democratic Progressive Party is hoping to hold onto its large majority in parliament. The the DP up against the resurgent Wilmington the centre-right KMT sent into opposition. After a heavy defeat in two thousand sixteen general election what is being rebuilding mode ever since with mixed results as election day. Nears present size looking like a shoe in to be reelected most polls give her a commanding lead over her closest rival handle you. The of the opposition came a hand. Upset you not be totally ruled out the populace mayor of Shem mm-hmm did cause a shock in two thousand eighteen by winning control of a DP stronghold with little party backing but since then his star seems to faded under the national spotlight. And is it using credit style on the campaign trail seems less suited to carrying the entire country a victory for president side cap off a remarkable twelve months incumbent woman dollar only one year ago no one would have predicted. The current president is being returned to office. That's the possibility of CY. Winning a double digit margin was around this time last year. When Monaco interviewed the president of the Palestine Taipei back then. The DP was still reeling from a drubbing. In local elections and size. Personal popularity has plummeted after pushing through some unpopular. Pension reforms. Unnecessary tonic Taiwan. That was looking like a poison chalice for the President Cup payments and you affect a lot of people's income income that is source of discontent and we pay a lot inputting comprises so just. How did this remarkable turnaround come about. The answer is simple. Because of China general elections Taiwan inevitably tune on national security courtesy and the twenty twenty almost become a single issue election washing self-governing island's future relationship look like with mainland China vote for the DP a greater independence or take the came teebox but closer economic ties. Everything that China did in two thousand nineteen seem to play into Taiwanese fears and strengthened president size hand from fighter jets buzzing Taiwanese space and holding intimidating war games to to a saber-rattling speech by Chinese president. Xi Jinping that started the clock in Beijing on re-unification Bollywood's hygiene Egypt. Be All torture the sheets. Yeah during in his time president size being transformed into defender of Taiwanese sovereignty and on the other hand had to stop binding the drums so loudly for close economic. Don't make ties with the mainland for fear coming across his too pro China demographics in Taiwan favored the DP these days young voters are increasingly identifying themselves as Taiwanese rather than Chinese and during this election will be around one million first time boches. You support is tilted in size favor and the let's go. Gods were also shining on the president. When the popular mayor of Taipei ruled himself out of the running hand was not so lucky. An alternative Pro Beijing candidate ended the race in November and could take votes away from him. Nevertheless the biggest election miracle has been ongoing pro-democracy street protests in Hong Kong Home New Year's speech in two thousand nineteen the Chinese president pushed for the Hong Kong government known as One Country Two Systems. It to be implemented in Taiwan in Beijing's is Hong Kong was a successful president that could convince the renegade island to choose reunification but not anymore the Hong Kong protests have lifted the veil on what one country two systems could really mean and allowed president sized campaign team to make a central election issue in Taiwan talk of Hong Kong today becoming Taiwan tomorrow as trump the economy and pension reform. President Cy came out and supported after the protesters while Han. An issue state silent. The president's terrific has talked off my strong support from the trump White House and in Congress. Think the conversation that happened this week with the president of Taiwan was was a courtesy. Call comes out today sedate so I may not have it all her own way. One of the results to watch out for this weekend is whether the DPP can hold onto. Its parliamentary majority. There are a host of new parties vying for seats alongside the CAMPSIE and some voters may want to put the brakes on the DPP's unchecked lawmaking authority the danger of a big. DPP Win is that it may convince. Party bigwigs to push for an official referendum on independence and make it more difficult for president side to maintain the status quo size. Actually moderate in her party and she is seen as holding back some of the hardliners like her running mate vice president. William lie was repeatedly called Autobahn to officially break ties with China. Taiwanese independence absolute. No no for Beijing. We spoke to cy last year. She refused to rule out two referendum. After the election response to us can be summed up as follows. Thailand is a democracy It's not the leader. Who makes the decision

Explainer 150: Has Donald Trumps presidency benefited Taiwan?

"In. One of Trump's first forays into foreign policy following his election victory. 2016 was to take a phone call from Taiwan's president sighing when it isn't unusual, of course, for world leaders to speak on the telephone. But he represented a potentially significant shift in the relationship between the United States when it was after all the first time that one of the self-governed islands leaders and a US president believed of spoken since motion and Taipei severed diplomatic ties in the nineteen seventies. The United States of America, and the people of China have agreed to recognize each other and to establish diplomatic relations. That's then US president Jimmy Carter. Speaking nineteen Seventy-nine, the government of the United States of America acknowledges, the Chinese position that there is but one China and Taiwan is part of Chen. He was eight lining dramatic change in policy, including recognition from the White House. Woulda did to Beijing strict when China policy it was in essence a diplomatic acknowledgement that there was only one Chinese government. So had Donald Trump's phone call with saying when changed all that. This is what the right wing commentator. John Bolton told the broadcast of Fox News shortly after Trump was elected. Honestly, I think we should shake this relationship for the past several years. China has made aggressive I would say near belligerent claims in the South China Sea, they declared it to be a Chinese province. They've established a provincial capital. They're trying to put their hands around the throats of the economies Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and others has a direct impact on the United States. They also think Taiwan province. You wanna talk about provinces, China, we'll talk that was Joan Bolton who to the world's astonishment would later become Trump's national security advisor cooler heads appear to prevailed in the white as it committed to own of the one-china policy in practice things at different Washington. Continue to provide Taiwan with aids and their reports that the US is ready to approve three hundred thirty million dollars with volumes to the Taiwanese women. Change your funded haven't China firmly opposes any form of official or military contacts between Taiwan and the United States firmly opposes the United States arm sales to Taiwan under any circumstance, I hereby reiterate once again, the whoever commits any act of blowing themselves up by leaning onto foreign forces and undermining cross-straits pieces to -bility we'll have to eat the bitter fruit. They brew young. It hasn't gone very well in Beijing. China's leaders have warned of severe damage to bilateral ties with the US if the sale goes ahead, but it must also be seen in the context of the bitter trade war is being waged between the world's superpowers, a great respected affection from my friend president sheet, but I've made clear our trade imbalance is just not acceptable, China's market, distortions, and the way they deal. Cannot be tolerated. Taiwan will not appear in scathed from any economic standoff between the US and China Donald Trump's America. First policies have already had a dramatic impact on the island export orders. But Taipei's leaders may feel that it is a price with paying should use warships continue to stick their finger Beijing as they pass through the Taiwan Strait it being confirmed that to u s warships passed through the Taiwan Strait yesterday. It's the first such operation this year and Taiwan is likely to view it as support from Donald Trump's government. China says that the self ruled island is part of its territory and Beijing has not ruled out the use of force to bring it under control. The US navy's presence will certainly cheer the embattled Taiwanese president. So when many of the allies have deserted. And she's no longer chair of the ruling party following poor election results. It is clearly no coincidence as you cues. Beijing fake news. She stepped down. On these are uncertain times Taiwan, but for the time being at least Washington has its back.
