Solist auf der Suche nach Begleitung: Taiwan nach den Parlaments- und Präsidentschaftswahlen

Am 11. Januar 2020 haben die taiwanischen Wähler über die Zusammensetzung des Parlamentes und das Amt des Präsidenten abgestimmt. 19,3 Millionen Bürger waren aufgerufen ihre Stimme abzugeben. Die Amtsinhaberin und Kandidatin der Demokratischen Fortschrittspartei, DPP, Tsai Ing-wen wurde mit überwältigender Mehrheit als Präsidentin wiedergewählt. Bereits die Umfragen der vergangenen Wochen hatten sie weit vor ihrem größten Herausforderer Han Kuo-yu von der Kuomintang (KMT) gesehen. Im Legislativ Yuan, Taiwans nationalem Parlament, konnte die DPP ihre absolute Mehrheit verteidigen. Neben der stärksten Oppositionskraft KMT, die bei den Zweitstimmen mit 33,4% nur knapp hinter der DPP (34,0%) lag, allerdings deutlich weniger Direktmandate als die DPP gewann, wurden auch die neugegründete Taiwanische Volkspartei (TPP), die New Power Party (NPP), sowie fünf unabhängige Kandidaten ins Parlament gewählt.
