Lai, currently vice president, won the presidential election in January, but the DPP lost its majority in parliament.

Taiwan’s main opposition party the Kuomintang (KMT) took the most seats, but not enough to form a parliamentary majority on their own. The other seats were won by the small Taiwan People’s Party (TPP), led by former Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je. — Reuters
