  Independent

The Taiwan local elections of 2014,[1] commonly known as the nine-in-one elections (Chinese: 九合一選舉), were held on Saturday, 29 November 2014, to elect the Municipal Mayors, Municipal Councilors, Chiefs of indigenous districts in municipalities, Councilors of indigenous districts in municipalities, County Magistrates (City Mayors), County (City) Councilors, Township Chiefs, Township Councilors and chiefs of village (borough) in 6 municipalities and 16 counties (cities). Elected officials will serve a four-year term. The polling stations opened from 8 am to 4pm on the election day.[1]

The elections resulted in a substantial defeat for the KMT. The KMT previously held 14 of 22 municipalities and counties, but won only 6 in this election due to widespread public distrust, a practical Vote of No Confidence to President Ma's Administration, both politically (a reckless approach on the cross strait relations with Chinese Communist Party) and economically (social inequality on the income distribution).[2][3][4] The DPP gained executive control of 7 municipalities and counties from the KMT, while independent Ko Wen-je won the Taipei mayoral election.[5] Premier Jiang Yi-huah resigned after the election, forcing President Ma Ying-jeou to appoint Mao Chi-kuo to replace Jiang.[6] President Ma resigned from his post as Chairperson of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) in the days following the election.[7]
