US won’t poke around in next ballot: adviser

By William Lowther  /  Staff reporter, in Washington

“Candidates will have to strike some balance between economic policies and policies toward [China], because they are connected,” Glaser said.

The US had two important interests in Taiwan’s presidential election, she said.

One is seeing the elections conducted in a “free and fair” manner.

“The US has a deep interest in the democratic process in Taiwan and any kind of anomaly that causes the elections not to be free and fair, the US would be concerned about,” Glaser said.

The second interest, she said, is in the preservation of cross-strait stability and keeping communication channels open between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.
