China Vows to Maintain Pressure on Taiwan Following Election of New President

Despite China’s campaign of warplanes, rhetoric, and intimidation, Taiwan voters elected independence-leaning Lai Ching-te as president, handing an unprecedented third consecutive term to the Democratic Progressive Party. China, considering Taiwan a renegade province, opposed the DPP’s victory.

Analysts expect China to intensify its campaign of pressure and coercion against Taipei. Beijing’s official reaction signals no compromise, emphasizing the “basic fact” of one China. China’s threats might have pushed voters towards independence-leaning forces.

While a conflict isn’t imminent, China’s pressure tactics continue, with a 2027 timeline for a possible invasion of Taiwan.
