Tomorrow, January 14, the Taiwanese go to the polls to elect their President and members of the Legislative Yuan. Whoever wins will rule for the next four years, and rallies are being held all over the island. Lee Teng-hui suffering from illness and in need of a probable upcoming operation braved the cold weather to come out and tell the voters that the future depended on them. Speaking at a Tsai Ing-wen rally, he encouraged all to vote for her.

We will know the results in less than a day.
