    Taiwan's Election Eve (Photos), Jan 13, 2012

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     nealmoore shares these photos of rallies in Taipei, Taiwan, on the eve of a contentious and high-profile election for the country's presidency. 'As an observer, I think to witness and document first hand the optimism and resulting on-the-street reality of democracy in action here in East Asia, was a great experience,' he said. 'In my view, I'm thus both satisfied and thrilled with the victor.'

    Taiwan's Election Eve (Photos), Jan 12, 2012

     

    By NEAL MOORE (CNN iReport) TAIPEI -- I visited the pan-blue ruling KMT Rally for current President Ma Ying-jeou on Ketagalan Boulevard in front of the Presidential Office in Taipei City and the pan-green Democratic Progressive Rally for presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen out front her National Campaign Headquarters in New Taipei City, BanCiao District. It was interesting to see what the young and old had to say – both parties optimistic for tomorrow’s presidential vote, which observers from Beijing to Washington will be closely watching.
