Results

The elections resulted in a substantial defeat for the KMT. The KMT previously held 14 of 22 municipalities and counties, but won only 6 in this election due to widespread public distrust, a de facto vote of no confidence to President Ma's Administration, both politically (a reckless approach on the cross strait relations with Chinese Communist Party) and economically (social inequality on the income distribution).[3][4][5] The DPP gained executive control of 7 municipalities and counties from the KMT, while independent Ko Wen-je won the Taipei mayoral election.[6] Premier Jiang Yi-huah resigned after the election, forcing President Ma Ying-jeou to appoint Mao Chi-kuo to replace Jiang.[7] President Ma resigned from his post as Chairperson of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) in the days following the election.[8]

As five elected leaders were incumbent legislators, a subsequent legislative by-election was held in March 2015, in which there were no party swings.
