The DPP’s nominees passed the LY. While one may agree or disagree with nominees positions, from a democratic perspective the DPP as the majority in the legislature has the votes to approve what it wants (in connection with its NPP allies). The KMT may be principled and truthful in its opposition but it doesn’t have the votes. That is democracy and I can understand it.
What I’ve never been able to understand is why under the same democratic principles was the KMT never able to approve the trade deal that spurred the Sunflowers? Was the DPP just so good at using procedural tactics that the KMT was unable to ever bring the issue to an up/down vote (if so, the DPP may have been acting legally, but the result feels undemocratic). Or was there a lot of passive opposition in the KMT such that WJP wasn’t really ever that enthused about presenting the matter for a direct vote? Just trying to understand why the KMT was unable to use their majority in a similar fashion on that issue.
