A new political trend of independent party affiliation is indicated in the Taiwan’s local election, says a professor.

“Ko Wen-je, the elected Taipei mayor, represents an emerging political trend which is not affiliated to any parties,” said Wong Chung Ming, associate professor of Journalism and Communication department of Shue Yan University.

Wong said Ko successfully won the votes from ‘light green or blue’ swing voters in the ‘Nine-in-one’ elections, which partially support the two main traditional party - Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and Kuomintang (KMT).

He reckoned Ko is less radical than DPP and less conservative than KMT, eventually an increasing group of voters not bound to any specific party might have been casted their vote to Ko, compares to 2014 elections.

In fact, more than half of Taininese identifies themselves not affiliated to any parties, according to the Taiwan National Security Survey (TNSS); this represents a weakening traditional party ties in Taiwan.

On the other hand, Wong said that the key of Han Kuo-yu’s vitory is that he admits ‘1992 Consensus’, which gave hopes to voters under Kaohsiung’s declining economics in the past 20 years.

“Han stressed Taiwan is going downhill and DPP had done nothing to improve China-Taiwan relationship, therefore moved Kaohsiung’s voters,” Wong added.

Wong predicted Chu Li-lun and Lai Ching‑te, current mayor of New Taipei and current Taiwan Premier respectively, will ‘highly possibly’ run for the presidency of Taiwan in 2020, after Tsai quit the chairperson of the DPP.
