Taiwan Elections 2008: Ma Ying-jeou’s Victory and the KMT’s Return to Power

Frank Muyard
p. 79-94

Abstract

After eight years of DPP administration, the 2008 legislative and presidential polls in Taiwan saw the Kuomintang return to power with the election of Ma Ying-jeou as the new president and an increased majority in the Parliament. Apart from the circumstantial factors behind this double victory, a detailed analysis of the poll results and comparisons with the results of previous elections reveals the recent evolution of an electorate that remains structurally oriented towards the KMT.
