War in Taiwan '24: Election (General)

Taiwan's election is between a Lie, a Cur, & a Ho.

I'm actually hoping Ke Wen-je does well, just to shake up the duopoly. He gets attacked for his China position, but it seems not too bad - he's vowed to continue Tsai Ing-wen's autonomy policy but to try & take some heat out of the relationship with China. Sounds sensible enough.

According to this live feed at 8:20PM on election day Japan time, Ke has over 25% of the vote, which is astonishing. Taiwan is clearly a multi-party democracy now, which is great. I wish I could say the same for the US.
