â€œTaiwanâ€™s Recent â€˜Nine-in-Oneâ€™ Electionâ€
Bill Sharp, Hawaii Pacific University
My presentation will focus on the exciting November 2014 â€œ9 in 1â€ election in Taiwan, which determined the occupants of 11,130 local level political offices. I will examine the reasons that the Nationalist Party suffered such a humiliating defeat. Special attention will be given to the possible impact of the 9 in 1 election on the upcoming 2016 presidential and legislative elections. Will a credible third force evolve in Taiwan politics? Challenges abound for all entities: recently elected Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je, the Democratic Progressive Party, the Nationalist Party, China, and the U.S.
