Taiwan elections: Allegations of Chinese interference, candidate beatings, vote-buying scandals

Taiwan’s local by-elections generated plenty of drama and intrigue on Saturday as more than 11,000 positions in 22 cities and counties will be decided.

Physical beatings of candidates, vote-buying scandals and allegations of foreign plots are out of this election cycle.

Sky News Asia Correspondent Brent O’Halloran reports that some have argued the results will affect whether Taiwan remains a democracy or falls under the control of Communist China.
