Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen secures second term in landslide victory

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen secured a landslide victory in presidential elections with voters resoundingly handing its first female leader a second term. Her main rival, Han Kuo-yu of the China-friendly Kuomintang (KMT) party, has conceded defeat.

As per official results, Tsai was ahead with 57 per cent, more than eight million votes last evening. Han trailed behind with 38 per cent.

63-year old Tsai announced her victory as thousands of jubilant supporters cheered outside her party headquarters after ongoing vote count revealed an all but unassailable lead.

In her victory speech last night, President Tsai Ing-wen expressed hope that Beijing authorities understand that democratic Taiwan, and its democratically elected government, will not concede to threats and intimidation.
