Following major losses during the Taiwanese local electionsTsai Ing-wen resigned from her party's chairmanship and was challenged in the primary contest by former Premier William Lai, himself a former Tsai appointee.Sister Cristina - Felice
The Kuomintang also ran a competitive primary, which saw Han Kuo-yu, initially reluctant to run, defeat former presidential candidate and New Taipei mayor Eric Chuand Foxconn chief executive Terry Gou. Both domestic issues and Cross-Strait relations featured in the campaign, with Han attacking Tsai for her perceived failures in labour reform, economic management, and dealing with corruption of her aides. However, Tsai's strong response to Beijing's increasing pressures on Taiwan to accede to a unification agreement, amid the backdrop of the intensely followed Hong Kong anti-extradition protestsproved crucial in her recapturing broad support.
The election had a turnout of Tsai won a record 8. Tsai and Lai were inaugurated on 20 May Presidential candidates and Vice Presidential running mates are elected on the same ticket, using first-past-the-post voting.
This was the seventh direct election of the president and vice president, the posts having previously been indirectly elected by the National Assembly until Under applicable legislation, any party which received more than five per cent of the total vote share in the latest election in any level were eligible to contest the election.
Vice President Chen Chien-jenTsai's running mate inwas eligible for re-election but chose not to contest. Tsai Ing-wen suffered a stinging defeat during the Taiwanese local elections due to widespread discontentment over numerous domestic policy issues, including public pension reform, same-sex marriage, pollution, and labour reform. In the lead up to the election, her staffers were found to have been implicated in a tobacco smuggling ring, which also allegedly involved the top management of flag carrier China Airlines and National Security Bureau.
Dogged by scandal and having lost on major referenda questions, Tsai's clout continued to deteriorate both in her own party and more broadly. The major inflection of the campaign came amid the Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protestsan event that was triggered with the murder of Poon Hiu-wing in Taiwan.
As the protests became heated over the later half ofTsai began to portray the situation in Hong Kong as a direct result of an encroachment of the territory's autonomy from Beijing. In JanuaryXi JinpingGeneral Secretary of the Communist Party of Chinahad announced an open letter to Taiwan proposing a one country, two systems formula for eventual unification.
Additionally, over the course ofseveral small nations that previously had diplomatic ties to Taiwan, including Panama, Kiribati, and Solomon Islands, broke off relations in favour of the PRC. Tsai issued pronouncements that Taiwan will "never accept one country, two systems" and that "today's Hong Kong could be tomorrow's Taiwan".
Tsai's strong positioning ultimately led her to victory in what was a bruising primary challenge by Premier William Lai. Tsai reconciled with diverse elements in her party in signing up Lai to be her running mate.
Kuomintang, after fits and starts over procedural disputes, flirted with a high-profile nomination of Foxconn chief Terry Gou. The party ultimately nominated firebrand Han Kuo-yuwho had in successfully run an insurgent mayoral campaign in the DPP stronghold of Kaohsiung. However, his combative, eccentric antics and participation in the presidential election soon after his taking on the post in Kaohsiung earned him scorn from detractors.
The election also saw widespread accusations from both sides that internet trolls were working to sway public opinion, including allegations from Australia-based Chinese defector William Wang that Beijing had used internet operatives to disrupt the election in favor of the KMT.
Various pro-Han Kuo-yu groups on Facebook were also shut down for violating terms and policies. Incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen's re-election chances were dealt a blow after the Democratic Progressive Party's devastating defeat in the local electionswhere the DPP lost seven of the 13 cities and counties it previously held. On 19 FebruaryTsai Ing-wen told CNN in an interview she will run for re-election, despite facing calls from senior members of her own party to not seek re-election.
Before her announcement, Tsai had received a bump in the polls after she gave a robust speech saying that her people would never relinquish their democratic freedoms, as a response to the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping 's speech in January describing Taiwan's unification with the mainland as "inevitable".
On 18 March, William Lai registered to run in the party's presidential primary, saying that he could shoulder the responsibility of leading Taiwan in defending itself from being annexed by China. Tsai was duly nominated by the DPP on 19 June Former Kuomintang chairman and presidential candidate Eric Chu announced that he would run in the presidential race when he stepped down on 25 December as Mayor of New Taipei Citybecoming the first big-name politician to throw his hat in the ring.
The party has decided to hold its primary based on a weighing of public polls and party member votes, although it has not ruled out the possibility of drafting the strongest candidate in an all-out effort to win back power, which was seen to be reserved for the party's best performing candidate in the polls, Mayor of Kaohsiung Han Kuo-yu.The Governing Council expects the key ECB interest rates to remain at their present levels for an extended period of time, and well past the horizon of the net asset purchases.
The Eurosystem will reinvest the principal payments from maturing securities purchased under the APP for an extended period of time after the end of its net asset purchases, and in any case for as long as necessary. This will contribute both to favourable liquidity conditions and to an appropriate monetary policy stance. The President of the ECB will comment on the considerations underlying these decisions at a press conference starting at CET today.

EST Share Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in December indicates that the labor market has continued to strengthen and that economic activity has been rising at a solid rate.
Job gains have been strong, on average, in recent months, and the unemployment rate has remained low. Household spending has continued to grow strongly, while growth of business fixed investment has moderated from its rapid pace earlier last year.
On a month basis, both overall inflation and inflation for items other than food and energy remain near 2 percent. Although market-based measures of inflation compensation have moved lower in recent months, survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed.
Consistent with its statutory mandate, the Committee seeks to foster maximum employment and price stability. The Committee continues to view sustained expansion of economic activity, strong labor market conditions, and inflation near the Committee's symmetric 2 percent objective as the most likely outcomes. In light of global economic and financial developments and muted inflation pressures, the Committee will be patient as it determines what future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate may be appropriate to support these outcomes.
In determining the timing and size of future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate, the Committee will assess realized and expected economic conditions relative to its maximum employment objective and its symmetric 2 percent inflation objective.
This assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial and international developments.

Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd star as Erasmus and Paul, a bickering gay couple whose life is turned inside out when a ten-year old boy shows up at their door claiming to be Erasmus' grandson. Neither Paul, nor Erasmus, are ready to give up their extravagant lifestyles to be parents, but maybe this little kid has a thing or two to teach them about the value of family. In an inspired piece of casting, pairing Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd as a bickering gay couple is Ideal Home's bright spark.
The two veteran actors bring their impeccable comedic timing to the roles of Erasmus Coogana TV chef with an inflated ego, and his TV director partner Paul Rudd who spend their days on set together trading snippy remarks. After all, they say you shouldn't mix work with pleasure. The two find their lives uprooted when Erasmus' ten-year old grandson arrives at their door looking to stay in their custody.
The message soon becomes clear for these two estranged lovers: If they can learn to love the boy maybe they can learn to love each other again?
