This was evident from the prolonged protests & local election results in Hong Kong, and now it was confirmed with the Saturday’s Presidential elections in Taiwan. The former President, Mrs Tsai Ing-wen,  managed to win 57% of the votes, recording the biggest victory in the history of Taiwan.

A ceasefire could be signed today between the Libyan Government and Khalifa Haftar at their meeting in Moscow, Russia. Delegates from Egypt and Untited Arab Emirates will also be there.
