Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen stepped down as head of her ruling party after it suffered defeat in Saturday’s local elections while the Beijing-friendly main opposition held its ground.
“The election results were not as expected …. I should shoulder all the responsibility and I resign as DPP chairwoman immediately,” she told reporters. Ms Tsai will stay on as President of the self-ruled island.
