    KMT occupies Legislative Yuan assembly hall in protest over Control Yuan ‘cronyism’ (2020/06/29)

    Physical scuffles took place at the Legislative Yuan Monday morning, after KMT lawmakers occupied the assembly hall on Sunday. They are calling on President Tsai Ing-wen to withdraw the nomination of former Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu to lead the Control Yuan. The KMT says the Control Yuan nominee list is nothing but cronyism. Their protest attempted to block a general discussion on the issue scheduled for Monday, but DPP lawmakers managed to break in and regain control of the speaker's podium.

    On Sunday afternoon, KMT lawmakers broke into the Legislative Yuan’s assembly hall, occupying the space and writing “We Will Not Endorse Cronyism in the Control Yuan” in green spray paint on the speaker’s podium.

    On Monday morning the KMT was still occupying the hall, but at 11 a.m. DPP lawmakers set on the barricade and began trying to remove the KMT. Lawmakers Chen Ou-po and Hung Sun-han took a pair of hydraulic cutters to the iron chain placed around the door.

    The KMT did all it could to keep the DPP out, piling chairs up over the entrance and draping them with iron chains, but eventually the DPP broke through. As they streamed into the hall, the KMT’s Lin Yi-hua threw talcum powder over their heads.

    What followed was a very long scuffle. In the end, the DPP outnumbered their opponents and took control of the speaker’s podium. After 40 minutes’ jostling, the speaker of the Legislative Yuan, You Si-kun was escorted to his position at the podium where he began the general discussion as scheduled. And so the KMT’s promised three-day-long protest was over in just 20 hours.

    Afterward, legislator and KMT Party Chairman Johnny Chiang spoke to the press outside the legislature, promising continued resistance during this summer’s extraordinary session. The pan-blue camp said it should have organized a bigger protest. It also launched a personal attack against Speaker You.

    Under previous speakers, you wouldn’t see lots of scenes like that followed by meetings being held. They would call for an intermission and then everyone would talk things over.

    I think they’re full of low-down tactics. They were clearly planning this. They wanted to go in and occupy the legislature, and then use negotiations as a pretense to whittle down our power and our focus.

    Later on Monday, the legislature opened its extraordinary session, passing a resolution to let a legislative committee consider the Control Yuan and Examination Yuan nominees for approval. A new schedule was agreed, slating a vote on the nominees for July 17.
