The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Taiwan’s ruling party, achieved a historic victory on Saturday, securing a third term in office. Vice President Lai Ching-te won the closely watched presidential election with over 40 percent of the vote. The election, framed by China as a choice between “peace and war,” comes at a critical juncture amid escalating tensions between Taipei and Beijing. China has previously expressed its view that the DPP’s governance is “incompatible” with cross-strait peace. Despite this, Lai’s victory signifies a significant moment for Taiwan’s political landscape.
