La carrera presidencial de tres opciones en Taiwán se acalora

By Jordi Bou

January 13, 2024 - Más de 23 millones de taiwaneses se preparan para elegir a su próximo
presidente, mientras China intensifica la presión militar en su actualreclamación por la soberanía de la isla gobernada democráticamente.

Taiwan is set to vote on Jan 13 in presidential and parliamentary elections, held once every four years.

The presidential election has the potential to redefine Taiwanese relations with China at a fraught time. In the face of rising Chinese aggression, both opposition parties would adopt a more compromising stance towards the mainland.

After a breakdown in last-ditch negotiations between the island’s main opposition leaders, there will be a three-way race. Hou Yu-ih of the Kuomintang (KMT), and Ko Wen-je of the upstart Taiwan People’s Party (TPP) will run against William Lai, the vice-president and candidate of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

U.S. President Joe Biden’s government already has strong links to Taiwan’s ruling party led by Tsai Ing-wen, and has pledged $480 million to bolster the island’s military capabilities in the face of Beijing’s increased military aggression.

China claims Taiwan as part of its territory and threatens to take it by force if Taipei resists unification indefinitely.
