24 – 27 November 2014 | Taipei, Taiwan and Taichung, Taiwan

CALD capped its series of activities for the year with an election mission in Taiwan late November. Hosted by the Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan (DPP), and with FNF support, the mission was organized to enable participants to witness the largest ever election in the history of electoral process in Taiwan. But the participants from Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, and Germany not just personally witnessed the campaign strategies of local candidates, they also met the candidates themselves. The results of the 9-in-1 elections held on 29 of November eventually revealed majority of Taiwan as having voted for the DPP. In reaction, the party’s chairperson, Dr. Tsai Ing-wen, said in part, “Tonight’s election results are a historical prologue for change. As a politician, we only have one principle: facing with the power of the people, we should only become more humble.”
