In addition to choosing a new president, voters will determine the new make-up of the legislature by selecting their local lawmakers and also legislators-at-large. The DPP has held the majority in the single-chamber legislative body since Tsai Ing-wen first won the presidency in 2016.

Control of both the executive and legislative branches of government has granted the party a greater ability to pass bills and effect meaningful change over the past 8 years.

The official 2024 legislative results will be updated after the Central Election Commission concludes the final count.
