Taiwan's cabinet resigned en masse today after the ruling party suffered a massive defeat at the island's biggest ever local elections.

The ruling Beijing-friendly Kuomintang had their power slashed across Taiwan at the key polls, with Premier Jiang Yi-huah quitting hours after the disastrous result - seen as a key barometer ahead of the 2016 presidential race.

In the wake of Jiang's resignation, Taiwan's 81-strong cabinet formally stepped down this morning.

The current cabinet members will continue to serve as caretakers until a new line-up is selected by the next premier.
