KMT's Actions are "Absurd Irony": Presidential Office|藍委要求撤陳菊人事 府:提名當之無愧

On June 29, President Tsai Ing-wen swore in new officials for the Presidential Office, National Security Council, Ministry of National Defense, and ministers without portfolio. In the face of the Kuomintang's occupation, the Presidential Office called on the KMT to stop its boycott.



Forty years ago, Chen Chu served time during the era of martial law. Forty years later, or today, we see the paradox of the Kuomintang legislative caucus refusing to use the legal and reasonable legislative space they have access to review (the nomination). This is not self-imprisonment. This is taking Taiwan's democracy hostage. The extraordinary session was scheduled to review nominations for the Examination Yuan, Control Yuan, and National Communications Commission as well as three important draft bills and the China Airlines passport "name rectification" proposal.

The Presidential Office said the KMT occupying the legislature before the review was viewed as absurd irony by many Taiwanese people. It also said party politics are not a reason to hold the Legislative Yuan hostage and called on the ruling and opposition parties to go back to legal procedure and rational discussion. The Presidential Office also said the KMT paralyzing the Legislative Yuan does not help the legislative agenda progress.

總統府發言人 張惇涵表示:「40年前,陳菊在威權年代之下,被囚禁。40年後的今天,我們看到國民黨黨團立委,明明有國會,合法、合理審議的空間,卻悖離,不使用這樣的方式,這不是自囚,而是把台灣民主當人質。這一次的臨時會,除了考、監兩院,以及NCC的人事同意權之外,還包含三項重要的法案,以及華航、護照正名的決議案。」

總統府強調,國民黨未審議先杯葛,很多國人看來是荒唐諷刺,也令大家錯愕,批評政黨運作不應綁架國會,呼籲朝野回歸合法程序,理性討論。總統府也表示,國民黨現在癱瘓立院,其實無助議題的進度。
