Taiwanese local elections 2018 just ended in last weekend. The Kuomintang (KMT) has won the popular vote against the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), who won a majority in the local elections 2014.

Dr. Wong Chung Ming, Associate Professor of Department of Journalism and Communication of Hong Kong Shue Yan University, thought that the victory of Han Kuo-yu in Kaohsiung is benefit from the times in the General Assembly of Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

“The citizens in Kaohsiung are discontent to the economic stagnation and the blamed it on the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), who were the Mayors in the past 20 years,” Wong said. The candidate of DPP and the previous Mayor of Kaohsiung, Chen Chi-mai still disappoint the citizens by talking about the data only, not the practical solutions.

On the other hand, Han Kuo-yu convinced the citizens and the students went to Northern Taiwan that his campaign would boost the Kaohsiung’s economic development. It is not only turned out a usually dormant pan-Blue voting bloc in Kaohsiung, but also many pan-Green voters switched sides with his promises of greater economic development.

Before the election, Han received almost no support from the Kuomintang. During the campaign period, Han’s popularity soared within months. His mayoral campaign drew wide attention and support, not only in Kaohsiung but also other cities in Taiwan. This phenomenon was referred to as "Hánliú".

“It was also benefited the other KMT candidates, and helped the KMT won most of the Mayors of Taiwan," Wong said. Wong also mentioned that Han is good at promoting himself through the internet and pep rally.

Many DDP candidates lost to the KMT candidates in the Mayors elections. The DPP candidates are only won in 6 cities. People treat this local election as a test to Tsai Ing-wen, the President of Taiwan. Comparing to their great performance in the last election, it shows that Tsai Ing-wen fails to lead the DDP. Then, she announced resignation as the party head for DPP.

"She should resign as the head immediately to take charge of this failure," Wong said.
