On January 11, Taiwan voters re-elected incumbent President Dr. Tsai, a proponent of de facto Taiwanese independence vis-à-vis mainland China. This comes only three months after voters in Hong Kong boosted the city’s democracy movement in district elections.

Most major, democratic nations were quick to congratulate Tsai, with one notable exception: Germany.
