India, Feb. 14 -- The US House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mike Gallagher and a delegation of lawmakers will visit Taiwan on February 21 in a show of the United States' support for the island after the elections, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday, citing three people familiar with his plan.

On January 13, Taiwan held a general election in which pro-independence candidate Lai Ching-te of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party won with 40.05% of the vote to head the island's local administration. Lai is expected to be sworn in as the island's new leader on May 20.
