Taiwan President Tsai offers to step down as ruling party chief

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen offered to step down as chief of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party on Saturday to take responsibility for the party’s crushing defeat in local elections the same day.

The results of the elections are seen by Tsai’s DPP and the pro-China main opposition Nationalist Party, or Kuomintang (KMT), as a prelude to the 2020 presidential and legislative elections.
