Taiwanese voters aligned with the position of President Tsai Ing-wen’s government on four issues in a weekend referendum, a win for the leader ahead of elections next year. 

More than 50% voters said “no” to reimposing a ban on imports of pork containing trace amounts of ractopamine, a feed additive used by many U.S. producers.
