Important transitions marking power reshuffles occurred in the United States, Taiwan, and China in 2022. The 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party was held during October 16-22, producing a Politburo and Standing Committee comprised entirely of Xi Jinping’s prot？g？s and scrapping the previous pattern of compromise and equilibrium among political factions. After the November 8 midterm elections in the United States, Republicans seized control of the House of Representatives while the Democrats’ overall performance was evidently better than expected. The “nine-in-one” local elections in Taiwan on November 26 turned out to be a major setback for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party, which won in only five of the 21 localities where magistrates or mayors were elected and lost in three localities of high political significance for a net loss of two localities. Stemming from the reshuffles are crucial factors related to each of the three political systems that would affect trilateral relations in the near future.
