Taiwan’s DPP secures historic third presidential win, easing global market tensions

Democratic Progressive Party’s historic third win in Taiwan eases global market fears, with Lai Ching-te’s victory assuring stability in the crucial semiconductor sector amid tensions with China,” says deVere CEO Nigel Green.



In a landmark political event breaking the infamous “eight-year curse” of political transitions, Taiwan’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) clinched a historic third consecutive presidential victory this Saturday, a development that global markets have welcomed, according to Nigel Green, CEO of deVere Group, a leading financial advisory, asset management, and fintech organization.

Lai Ching-te, the current vice president of Taiwan, emerged victorious in the elections, dispelling the concerns of global investors who had been apprehensive about his perceived hawkish stance and the possibility of pushing for Taiwan’s formal independence.

Nigel Green remarked, “Taiwan is at the heart of the global semiconductor industry, hosting some of the world’s top semiconductor firms. Investors were worried that a more assertive leadership under Lai might provoke China, leading to sanctions that could disrupt the global supply chain, especially in semiconductors.”

Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturers, including industry giants like TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company), play a crucial role in the global production of high-tech products.

Green added, “Any disruption in Taiwan’s semiconductor production could have far-reaching effects on multiple industries, from electronics and automotive to telecommunications. Given the interconnected nature of the global economy, such disruptions could pose significant economic challenges worldwide.”

Despite his hawkish reputation, Lai Ching-te has maintained that his administration would not seek formal independence for Taiwan, a stance that has significantly alleviated concerns among global investors.

“This commitment is key in reducing fears of potential conflict and its effects on the vital semiconductor sector,” Green asserted.

The DPP’s historic third consecutive win highlights the strength and stability of Taiwan’s democratic system and institutions. Amid external pressures and warnings from China, Taiwanese voters have shown their trust in the DPP leadership, favoring the maintenance of the status quo.

“This political stability is a reassuring sign for global investors, as it lessens the chances of sudden disruptions or radical policy changes that could adversely affect the financial markets,” the deVere CEO noted.

He also emphasized the importance of diplomatic channels in easing tensions between Taiwan and China. With Lai’s victory, there is an opportunity for dialogue and finding common ground. The global community, including investors, would appreciate efforts to maintain stability and avoid escalation that could impact economic activities, particularly in sectors like semiconductors.

Green concluded, “The DPP’s third consecutive victory, despite China’s warnings, is a relief for global investors concerned about the semiconductor industry. Lai Ching-te’s dedication to preserving the status quo and avoiding formal independence for Taiwan, along with the stability of Taiwan’s democratic institutions, offers reassurance to investors and markets across the globe.”

Wow! Taiwan Chinese did not say BO BIAN and Surrender to China and votes DPP? Bo Kia See??

Bo Bian lah!
Limber smlj also say Bo Bian one! 🏳🏳🏳🏳🏳🏳🏳🏳🏳🏳 Malik Guita

Dun need to crap especially when candidates are elected by Special Empire Group. Open for all candidates desiring to SERVE. Then it won’t be just Special Group of Elected Candidates control by Some ppl.

This election shows that even when majority are against a candidate or party, the candidate or party can still win with 40% although 60% did not support DPP. In this sense, the sabotage is Effected by the 3rd candidate. In other words, only when 2 candidates or 2 parties contest can election results be fair or clear.
