TAIPEI — Taiwan’s President-elect Lai Ching-te will reshuffle but retain his predecessor’s cabinet members in key defense, foreign affairs and security positions when he takes office next month, tapping into their experience to maintain stability amid growing pressure from China.

Lai announced his latest picks on Thursday, less than a month before he takes over from President Tsai Ing-wen on May 20, beginning an unprecedented third successive term for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) after it won in the January presidential election.
