Taiwan's Local Elections: Domestic Politics, Global Implications
The Jamestown Foundation is proud to present a webinar on “Taiwan's Local Elections: Domestic Politics, Global Implications" on Tuesday, November 29 at 9:30 AM ET.

On November 26, Taiwan will head to the polls. Voters casting their ballots in the mayor/county magistrate and city council elections will be focused largely on domestic issues, including the state of the economy, the government response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the viability of the current social safety net. The election will also include a national referendum on whether or not to lower the voting age to 18. The performance in the local elections of the three major parties, the governing DPP, the opposition KMT and the Taiwan People’s Party (TPP), led by outgoing Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je, will set the stage for the presidential and legislative yuan elections in early 2024.

The Jamestown Foundation has invited three leading experts to consider the implications of the November 26 election results for Taiwan's trajectory, including their potential impact on both cross-strait and U.S.-Taiwan relations.
