Following the historic same-sex marriage constitutional ruling last week, Yunlin County deputy council speaker, Su Chun-hao, is now working on an impeachment case against the 14 grand justices who ruled in favor of the case. But experts in the law say Su's case has little ground. Recently the grand justices made an interpretation of the constitution, arriving at the verdict that marriage between members of the same sex was not unconstitutional. They required the Legislative Yuan to amend or implement relevant legislation within two years. Yunlin County councilors say that the issue is being discussed in the countryside and most people are against it and hope the government will reconsider. ==HUANG WEN-HSIANG Yunlin County Councilor== Same-sex relationships are a marginal issue, not a mainstream issue, the government doesn't have to deal with these marginal issues and make them legal. ==CHUNG MING-SHENG Yunlin County Councilor== We won't obstruct same-sex relationships, but the government shouldn't be encouraging them. On the morning of May 31, Yunlin County Council held a general interpellative session and the Yunlin County Council DPP Speaker Su Chun-ho proposed that the grand justices' interpretation of the constitution was, in fact, unconstitutional, as it was interpreting the spirit of the constitution, to solve legal concerns, and was shallow and hasty, causing social dispute in Yunlin. ==SU CHUN-HAO Yunlin County Council DPP Speaker== Yunlin County Councilors want to propose a motion to impeach the 14 grand justices who made interpretation 748 on the constitution, including the Judicial Yuan President Hsu Tzong-li. Su emphasized that within two years after the interpretation, the Legislative Yuan must amend or create relevant legislation. This oversteps the mark of the justices' remit and is an interference in legislative power, as, if legislation is not completed, people can still go to household registration offices and ask for marriage registration, as it has not been deemed unconstitutional. Su says that this also clearly interferes with executive power. However, councilor attendance at the meeting was insufficient, and Su will have to wait until over half of the council is present to vote on the motion. If there is majority support, then Yunlin County Council will send a motion to the Judicial Yuan recommending impeachment of the grand justices.
