Hong Kong’s Example Hangs Over Taiwan’s Election

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Taiwan is holding its presidential election on Jan. 11. Should you, the American reader, be interested? Yes; Reason: China. We all know what’s been going on in Hong Kong—nonstop physically and emotionally demanding protest demonstrations to preserve their autonomy from China. This would be under the “one nation, two systems” agreed upon when the British left, a structure which, incidentally, China’s leader Xi Jinping recently offered to Taiwan as an “inducement” to come aboard. Some inducement. Incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen is the favorite for reelection and Tsai wants to keep as far from the PRC as possible and the electorate appears to agree—or so I am also told.
