Taiwan Presidential Election of 2020: A Discussion with Chieh-Ting Yeh Ep 61

By Felicia Lin

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:

 With the Taiwan Presidential Election of 2020 coming up in Taiwan on January 11th, I thought it would be a good idea to do a podcast about this particular topic. Recently I spoke with Chieh-Ting Yeh, the Editor-in-Chief of Ketagalan Media, Vice-chairman of the Global Taiwan Institute and longtime watcher of Taiwan politics.

This episode should give you some interesting perspectives if you aren’t up on what’s going on with the upcoming presidential election in Taiwan.

 

Here’s a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:

 

  • How the presidential elections in Taiwan work
  • The three presidential candidates: Tsai Ing-wen, Han Kuo-yu, James Soong
  • What’s been the theme of Taiwan’s presidential election?
  • China’s influence on Taiwan’s presidential election
  • Domestic issues being overshadowed by the China issue during the presidential election
  • The influence of Hong Kong’s protests on Taiwan’s presidential election
  • The province of Taiwan under the Republic of China
  • Taiwan’s first peaceful transition of power from the Kuomintang to the Democratic Progressive Party
  • Why the presidential election in Taiwan was moved from March to January
  • How Taiwan’s presidential elections have changed or not over the years
  • What it’s like on presidential election day in Taiwan
