Cabinet spokeswoman Kolas Yotaka says Chen’s resignation has been accepted by Premier William Lai (賴清德).

Saturday’s vote saw candidates running for 11,047 local offices, and was held in conjunction with 10 referendums.

It has been described as the biggest ever vote in Taiwan, and voters encountered long lines and in some instances waits of two or three hours to cast their ballots.
