DPP's WIN IN TAIWAN ELECTIONS WILL HAVE REPERCUSSIONS
The results of Taiwan’s national elections announced on January 12, confirmed assessments that Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen’s popularity ratings had received a substantial boost, partly because of China’s threatening posture but mainly because of the unceasing protests in Hongkong that have now entered their ninth month without losing popular support. The results will impact China. Beijing -- and Chinese President Xi Jinping -- now confront the prospect of the ‘China Dream’, envisaging China’s ‘reunification’ by 2021 or even 2049, becoming a distant prospect. The results could have wider repercussions in the region.

CHINESE PRESIDENT XI JINPING FACES DIFFICULT TIMES AHEAD
There are clear indications that popular dissatisfaction and discontent with Chinese President Xi Jinping inside China continues to simmer just below the surface. The economic slowdown, unemployment and rising cost of living have contributed to the discontent.

THE CHINA DREAM
An idea never dies and the Chinese elite understood that centuries ago! 2. The ‘China Dream’, or idea of making China great again, has been espoused by Chinese leaders for more than a couple of centuries and the idea continues to resonate with the Chinese people. The first popular expression of this sentiment was the Boxer Rebellion (1889-1901), which was anti-imperialist, anti-foreign and anti-Christian – together crystalising into resentment against the colonial powers who had divided China, as the Chinese say, ‘like an over-ripe pomegranate’! The narrative being propagated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership of “a hundred years of humiliation” is part of this. Chinese leaders, including Mao Zedong and the founders of the CCP in 1921, have articulated this with varying intensity. One reason why it is called the ‘China Dream’ and not the Chinese Dream is that this is an idea that has inspired Chinese leaders and the leadership elite, and not the Chinese masses.

CCP CC’S 4TH PLENUM COULD SUGGEST A DILUTION IN XI JINPING’S AUTHORITY
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) held the long overdue 4th plenary session of its 19th Central Committee (CC) from October 28 – 31, 2019. Held after a delay of nearly 20 months, the 4th Plenum took place at a time of some uncertainty in China, indicated also by speculative reports suggesting that the Politburo Standing Committee (PBSC) could be expanded with the addition of a couple of new members. This speculation, which claimed that the induction of new members would signal a political setback for Xi Jinping, proved erroneous. However, while the Plenum communique unequivocally emphasised the Party’s importance in all spheres it, along with the Plenum Resolution issued on November 5 evening, did contain a hint that possibly Xi Jinping’s power has been slightly diluted.
