Prof Adv Tsai Ing-wen Esq LLB (NTU) LLM (Cornell) PhD (LSE), former Vice-Premier of Republic of China (Taiwan) and prominent Taiwanese politician, is expected to become Taiwan's next president and the most powerful woman in the Orient, surpassing HE Pres Dr Park Esq BEng (Sogang) HonD (CCU, PNU, KAIST, Sogang), President of Korea.

This could also lead to the first region in East Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, ahead of Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Macau, Vietnam, and Cambodia, all of which have thought to be on the verge of the legalization at one point. Homosexuality remains criminalized in Singapore and muslim countries such as the neighbouring Malaysia. This could likewise mean a Taiwanese independence from People's Republic of China.

Presidents of Republic of China -
HE Pres Dr Sun Yat-sen Esq MBBS (HK), provisional, president of all of China
HE Pres Gen Chiang Kai-shek Esq, president of all of China
HE Pres Yen Chia-kan Esq
HE Pres Chiang Ching-kuo Esq
elected presidents
HE Pres Dr Lee Teng-hui Esq BSc (NTU) MSc (Iowa) PhD (Cornell)
HE Pres Adv Chen Shui-bian Esq LLB (NTU)
HE Pres Dr Adv Ma Ying-jeou Esq LLB (NTU) LLM (NY) SJD (Harvard), current

Presidential candidates -
Prof Adv Tsai Ing-wen Esq LLB (NTU) LLM (Cornell) PhD (LSE)
HW Prof Eric Chu Esq BBA (NTU) MFin PhD (NY), current Mayor of New Taipei
HE Gov Dr James Song Esq BA (NCU) MA (Berkeley) MSc (CUA) PhD (Georgetown)

So it looks like holding a doctorate has become an unofficial requirement for Taiwanese premiership, with two of the last three presidents, as well as all three current candidates holding one.

She is elected after counting only 10m votes! Expected to be a big winning margin.

I bet you feminazi's would have a problem if Marine Le Pen was leader.

A real White woman.
What has that got to do with anything?
