IPAC Statement on Taiwan Elections

The Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China congratulates the people of Taiwan upon concluding a peaceful election in the face of unprecedented interference from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Against a backdrop of rising authoritarianism in the region, Taiwan is a beacon of vigorous democratic debate, exposing as false the trope that only the PRC’s “Whole Process People’s Democracy” is suited to the region. IPAC is united in congratulating the winners, whoever they may be.
