By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

The Taiwanese people elected their first woman president, Dr. Tsai Ing-wen, 59 years old and is with the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

In her victory speech she stressed, “I want to emphasize that both sides of the Taiwanese Strait have a responsibility to find mutually acceptable means of interaction that are based on dignity and reciprocity. We must ensure that no provocations or accidents take place, any forms of suppression will harm the stability of cross-strait relations”.

“The United States congratulates Dr. Tsai Ing-wen on her victory in Taiwan’s presidential election. We also congratulate the people of Taiwan for once again demonstrating the strength of their robust democratic system, which will now undergo another peaceful transition of power,” – said U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby.

In a new development after the successful election of Dr. Tsai Ing-wen, “the newly set up hotline between China’s Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO) and Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) that emerged after an agreement made during the Ma-Xi meeting in Singapore last November will stop ringing after May 20, Tsai’s inauguration day, and the MAC will lose its function afterward since it can no longer have any dialogue with its mainland counterpart. Instead, the Straits Exchange Foundation, the semi-official organization set up by Taiwan to handle private cross-strait affairs, will come back to life to deal with private sector matters between the two sides.” China Post reported.

It will be interesting to observe how the transformation of the relationship between Taiwan and China in the months and years ahead.
