Taiwan has Decided

Taiwanese has decided today 22 March 2008 as to who would be the country’s next President after Chen Shui Bian helmed the top office for 8 long years amidst the growing dissatisfaction of the Taiwanese with this current leader of the country, particularly over the growing economic woes that the nation faces in recent years.

Ma Ying Jiu of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) faced off with Xie Chang Ting of the Kuomingtang (KMT). Finally Ma Ying Jiu garnered 58.45 % of the total votes over his rival contender to become the President of Taiwan.

This year seems to be a year of elections, first in Malaysia, then in Taiwan, and then soon in the United States. In recent weeks, the leading contender in the US Presidential Candidacy for the Democratic Party, Mr Obama had lost a number of votes to his strong opponent, Ms Hilary Clinton.
