Race for 'Frozen Garlic': Assessing Taiwan's 2024 Elections
This season sees the chanting of ‘frozen garlic’ (‘凍蒜’ dongsuan, a Taiwanese Hokkien pronunciation for ‘當選’ dangxuan, meaning getting elected) in campaign rallies across Taiwan as the island approaches its quadrennial presidential and legislative elections on 13th January 2024.
