As a start, I know it’s officially the Review Committee, but it’s KMT dominated so really it’s the same thing.
So the Committee vetoed the referendum on the ECFA because according to the chairman the question “was not clear enough”. Also the public was being asked to vote on something that wasn’t a concrete policy yet.
LOL, what absolute rubbish! I was expecting the Committee to block it because the KMT don’t want a referendum but this is so dumb! The question isn’t clear? It’s bloody clear - do you want a vote on the ECFA or not! As for it not being set in stone, we know full well it’s going to happen. The referendum process takes time, so if people want a vote on it the referendum to get that vote to take place has to be held reasonable soon.
So there’s no point in appealing because the KMT, sorry Cabinet/appeal people, will block it too.
Why is it the KMT don’t trust the people? Every time there’s been a referendum proposed they’ve tried to have it blocked before it has even been held. Then when approved they’ve called for the public to boycott them or instructed KMT officials at voting stations to discourage people to participate, even for their own motions!
