National Elections Will Be Held in More Than 60 Countries

It appears like President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump will face off again in the US presidential election. The two front-runners’ perspectives on America’s standing in the globe diverge greatly. The outcome of the election in November might determine how aggressively the United States takes on China, Russia, and other foreign adversaries. The former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense is Joseph S. Nye Jr. He claimed to VOA that Trump’s “America First” stance is an attempt to revive isolationism in international relations. This could put American allies in a challenging situation as tensions between China and Taiwan grow and the hostilities in Russia, Ukraine, and Israel and Hamas rage on.

 

Taiwan’s general elections are scheduled for January 13. Despite its little size, Taiwan has a significant impact on global trade. Taiwanese businesses produce around 90% of all sophisticated microchips and more than 70% of the world’s semiconductors. Up until 2024, the main point of contention between the US and China will be Taiwan’s independence from China. Due to her term limit, President Tsai Ing-wen will not be seeking reelection in January. She has alerted the public to the fact that China is disseminating false information online in an attempt to deter support for Lai Ching-te, the front-runner for president. Lai is vice president at the moment. Because of his previous remarks against Taiwan’s sovereignty, he has infuriated China.

 

The Russian presidential election is scheduled for March. Since its invasion of Ukraine almost two years ago, Russia has become the world’s most sanctioned nation. Russia’s economy has suffered as a result of the sanctions, drawing it nearer to China. Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, is not predicted to lose in 2024 by experts. Leading political opponents of his are either dead, disappeared, or imprisoned. If Putin wins another six years, Russia would continue “the same brutal agenda in Ukraine and increasingly autocratic policies at home,” said Sergey Radchenko. At the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, he teaches Soviet history.
