Tsai Ing-wen Wins Taiwan Leadership Election

Jan 16 , 2016

Tsai Ing-wen, candidate of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), won Taiwan's leadership election on Saturday, according to the final result of ballot counting released by the island's election commission.

In a speech at the Kuomintang (KMT) headquarters in Taipei, Tsai's rival KMT candidate Eric Chu acknowledged his failure, saying he would take responsibility and resign from the post of KMT chairman.

The Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council released a statement late on Saturday, saying the mainland's major principles and policies concerning Taiwan are "consistent and clear, and will not change with the results of Taiwan elections."
