Taiwan will hold general elections on January 11; election-related gatherings and protests possible



Taiwan will hold general elections on Saturday, January 11, to decide the President, Vice President, and all 113 seats of the 10th Legislative Yuan. The elections come amid heightened tensions concerning China's control over the self-governed Taiwan.

Political rallies and protests are possible following the result of the elections; a heightened security presence and associated traffic disruptions are to be anticipated at polling stations and near any demonstrations.  


Individuals in Taiwan are advised to monitor the situation, avoid public political demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions on January 11, and adhere to all instructions by local authorities and their home governments.
