Elizabeth Freund Larus, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs, indicated October 9 on CNBC Asia Squawk Box that unrest in Hong Kong has given Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen a boost in her reelection bid. Dr. Larus claimed that the Hong Kong protests have widened the race between the incumbent Tsai Ing-wen of the Democratic Progressive party (DPP) and the Nationalist Party’s (KMT) candidate and mayor of Kaohsiung city Han Kuo-yu. Larus predicted that Tsai is likely to win re-election in the January 2020 race, and that China-Taiwan relations would continue to be chilly well into Tsai’s second term.
