In the Taiwan presidential election of 2008, the former chairman of Kuomintang (KMT) Ma Ying-jeou won 58% of the votes, an overwhelming victory in the election. In Taiwan's presidential election in 2012 , he beat his challenger, Tsai Ing-wen, by a margin of 51 to 45.7 per cent of the total vote cast and re-elected to a second four-year term in office. During his first presidential term, the effectiveness of government policy was questioned. Typhoon Morakot, one of the worst natural disasters in past 50 years, brought a great test on Ma’s crisis management ability. ECFA with China bred different views in the society. These are also turning into unpleasant political experience for Mr. Ma who was elected in 2008 by a respectable margin but whose popularity has been steadily dropping and has turned into the kind of test that can make or break his political career.
