Orbán wins big - Greens win a little - Hungarian opposition does not achieve its goals

Lehet Más a Politika (LMP), the Green Hungarian EGP member party, has gained additional votes, a higher percentage of the overall vote, and more seats. We congratulate Bernadett Szell and her colleagues on this achievement. During the campaign, an even better result for LMP had at times been expected. It is good that they survived a very obnoxious campaign by the ruling party, but obviously the way towards a powerful alternative in Hungary that does prove that politics can indeed be different is still long, winding and steep.

Korea Green Party's 2018 elections for Korea's Seoul

On Jun. 13, South Korea is holding nationwide local elections. For the first time since its foundation in 2012, Green Party Korea candidates will appear on ballot papers across the country. 27-year-old Shin Ji-ye is the Green Party’s provisional candidate for the position of Seoul mayor. This position is seen as one of the most important political positions in the country, where around half of its 51.25 million population lives in Seoul or the areas surrounding it. The Green Party's election platform offer a valuable glimpse into the growing concerns of the country’s youngest, most progressive population. Shin believes she has a chance of winning Seoul. Three months before the vote, we met in the offices of Today Maker, Shin’s fledgling 3D printer manufacturing company, to hear more about her radical vision for one of Asia’s biggest cities and the heart of South Korea.

Taiwan Green Party 2016 Elections: Q&A with Ken-cheng Lee, former Party Co-Chair

In 2012 the Greens received nearly 230,000 votes (1.74%), and this year the Green Party and the Social Democratic Union coalition received 308,000 votes (2.53%). Although there is growth, we were still unable to cross the party vote threshold of 3.5% and the non-constituency (list) threshold of 5%. Pre-election polls had indicated that we could break through, but in the end there was a significant gap between our expectations and the election results. Taiwan's presidential elections this year led to a shift in power from the formerly ruling Kuomingtang party (KMT or Nationalist) to the Democratic People’s Movement (DPP), and the third time in which Taiwan experienced a change in the government party since the end of martial law in 1987. This is an important achievement for a country with a relatively recent transition to democracy. The election outcome is a result of the many social conflicts experienced in Taiwan during the time in which the KMT have been in power, from 2008 to 2016, resulting in clashes between civil society movements and the KMT. Despite the DPP actually contributing little to civil society movements in recent years, the DPP gained the most politically.
