    NPP criticizes DPP for delaying review of Referendum Act amendment (2017/04/21)

    NPP lawmakers today called out the ruling DPP for dragging out review of a bill that would dramatically lower the threshold needed to call a national referendum. No final vote has been held on the draft amendment to the Referendum Act since it passed an initial review in December last year, and the NPP caucus says it’s going to call on Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan to speed up the process.

    Taiwan independence supporters staged a protest outside DPP headquarters, urging the ruling party to quickly amend the Referendum Act, as NPP lawmakers pushed to complete legislative review of the bill. The NPP convened a cross-party negotiation session on the bill at noon but no DPP lawmakers showed up.

    If the legislator responsible for convening cross-party negotiations doesn’t do so, even one month after the committee has completed its review of the bill, and the bill still can’t submitted to the Legislature’s plenary session for a final vote, what kind of ridiculous system is that?

    In December 2016, the Legislature's Internal Administration Committee completed review of the amendment to the Referendum Act, which would significantly lower the thresholds for proposing and initiating a referendum. But the DPP convener of the committee never called cross-party negotiations on the bill, preventing the Legislature from proceeding to a second and third reading.

    Lee Chun-yi
    DPP Caucus Secretary-General
    We are neither ignoring it nor avoiding negotiations. It’s just that we don’t have time to deal with this yet. So we are asking the NPP to have some patience. The bill has been under review by the legislature for several sessions. But it’s not going to be left out.

    The DPP is busy with its pension reform push, but the NPP is losing patience, and has said it will write an official letter to Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan next week, urging him to convene cross-party consultations on the amendment.

    鳥籠公投法補正遲未三讀 時力批荒謬

    補正鳥籠公投法雖然已經在立法院完成初審,但還沒完成三讀,時代力量黨團質疑,公投法修正去年底就完成初審,遲遲不三讀荒謬至極,下周黨團將發函給立法院長蘇嘉全,協商公投法的修法進度。

    獨派團體「台灣國辦公室」在民進黨中央外演出行動劇,呼籲民進黨讓公投法補正盡速在立法院完成三讀,在院會提案要公投法盡速完成二三讀的時代力量黨團,中午召集朝野協商,但沒有民進黨立委出現。

    [[立委 (時力) 黃國昌]]
    “即使過了一個月,負責召集協商的委員如果不召集協商,已經完成委員會審查的法案,還是不能交給院會來處理,天底下有這麼荒謬的制度嗎?”

    公投法修法,早在去年十二月,內政委員會已經完成審查,降低了原先嚴格的門檻,但委員會完成審查到現在,民進黨召委沒召開過朝野協商,院會因此無法完成二三讀。

    [[民進黨團書記長 李俊俋]]
    “既沒有不處理的問題,也沒有不協商的問題,只是現在還沒有時間做這件事情,所以請時代力量稍安勿躁,大家已經審了這麼多屆,不會特別把這個案子放下來。”

    民進黨團要先拚年金改革等法案,但時代力量等不及,下周就要發函立法院長蘇嘉全,請院長召集朝野協商。
