On January 13, 2024, Taiwanese voters will cast their ballots to elect the president, vice president, and legislators on the island. This election marks the first of over 40 national elections scheduled globally in 2024. The presidential race features three contenders vying for the island’s top leadership position: William Lai Ching-te of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Hou Yu-ih of the Kuomintang (KMT), and Ko Wen-je of the Taiwan People’s Party (TPP). Our forthcoming webinar seeks to explore campaign trail developments, assess the cross-Strait factor, and analyze the geopolitical implications in the Indo-Pacific region.
