INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM BILL REVIEW GETS INTO CONFRONTATION|灑麵粉吹哨推擠 前瞻審查再爆激烈衝突

On May 11, the Legislative Yuan's Economics Committee held a meeting to re-review the draft bill for Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program. Strongly opposed to the draft bill, the KMT mobilized its legislators to stop the meeting from proceeding. Scuffles broke out between legislators of the KMT and the DPP.The review process finally began in the afternoon, after top level officials from the Executive Yuan arrived to clarify issues, but the review once again broke down at the draft bill's seventh article, which proved too contentious. While KMT legislators were shouting slogans, DPP legislators surrounded the podium to block them, attempting to take control of the situation. On May 11, the Legislative Yuan's Economics Committee held a meeting to re-review the draft bill for Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program. However, not long after the meeting started, a scuffle erupted between legislators of the two parties. During the scuffle, DPP legislator Lu Sun-ling fell to the floor and was injured. The DPP therefore called on the KMT to stop acting on violence. ==CHIU YI-YING DPP Legislator== The KMT's violence acts show that it is a party which has no strategic moves. The KMT lacks the ability to express its ideas and to convince others. On May.10, President Tsai Ing-wen asked for a progress on the draft bill during a DPP Central Standing Committee meeting. As KMT legislators held different opinions against DPP legislators on the issue, little progress was made. KMT legislator Liao Kuo-Tung even tossed flour in the air twice, making the joint meeting more chaotic. ==LIAO KUO-TUNG KMT legislator== How dare a president who only has a three-year term left in office compile an eight-year budget? She is going too far. Whether she could serve another term or not, she is interfering with the next president's business. Around noon, vice Premier Lin Hsi-yao and minister without portfolio Chang Ching-sen went to the Legislative Yuan to communicate with KMT legislators, in hopes that the review process could start in the afternoon. ==LIN HSI-YAO Vice Premier== Although the infrastructure program is scheduled for eight years, a budget review will be sent to the Legislative Yuan every two years. It was not until over 3pm that DPP committee convener Gao Jyh-peng announced to start reviewing the draft plan. When the second article was recited, KMT legislators took out their protest signs again, asking the bill to be returned. They said that the review did not follow appropriate procedures. However, the review continued as the DPP holds majority in the meeting. Unwilling to give up, KMT legislators whistled into a microphone, disturbing the meeting. Both KMT legislators and DPP legislators refused to compromise with each other. Several scuffles broke out in the afternoon as the meeting proceeded. The meeting was dismissed after the legislature official finished reciting the sixth article, because legislators had divided opinions on the seventh article, which specifies the plan's budget and launch time. The infrastructure plan will be reviewed another time.
