    Voting in Taiwan’s election closed today at 4 p.m. Taipei time (3 a.m. New York time), with incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) taking an early lead on Han Kuo-yu of the Kuomintang (KMT), according to key television networks. Seats in the Legislative Yuan—where the DPP also holds a majority—are on the ballot as well.

    Starting in 2012, legislative elections have been held simultaneously with presidential ones. A constitutional amendment reforming the Legislative Yuan was passed in 2005 and since then the party that controlled Taiwan’s executive branch also controlled its legislative assembly.

    Legislative Elections 

    Starting in 2012, legislative elections have been held simultaneously with presidential ones. A constitutional amendment reforming the Legislative Yuan was passed in 2005 and since then the party that controlled Taiwan’s executive branch also controlled its legislative assembly.
    Taiwan’s Parliament is elected by semi-proportional representation. Seventy-three members are elected in a first-past-the-post system from special municipalities, counties and cities. Of the remainder, 34 are chosen by proportional representation from lists proposed by political parties and six are elected by indigenous peoples.
