Regarding the crushing defeat of the Democratic Progressive Party led by President Tsai Ing-wen in the local elections in Taiwan, China evaluated that "the mainstream public opinion in Taiwan was reflected" and reiterated its position against Taiwan's secession.
Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for China's Taiwan Affairs Office, said today (27th) regarding the results of the local elections in Taiwan, "These results reflect the mainstream public opinion in Taiwan to pursue peace and stability and live well."
"We will continue to unite our compatriots in Taiwan, jointly promote the peaceful and integrated development of cross-Strait relations, and promote the welfare of our compatriots on both sides of the Strait," he said.
Spokesperson Zhu Fenglian also said, "We will resolutely oppose the division of Taiwan's independence and the interference of external forces, and together create a bright future for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation."
The Democratic Progressive Party suffered a crushing defeat in local elections to elect the heads of 21 prefectures and cities, including six municipalities directly under the Central Government, only taking five, including Tainan and Kaohsiung.
President Tsai Ing-wen and the Democratic Progressive Party led by him have shown a clear 'pro-US anti-China' line, risking conflict with China.
