YUNLIN COUNTY COUNCIL WANTS TO IMPEACH GRAND JUSTICES|雲議會向監院陳情 彈劾同婚釋憲大法官

The grand justices verdict on Article 748 ruling that same-sex marriage is not unconstitutional has lead to a dispute in Yunlin. On June 23, in Yunlin County, the DPP council's deputy speaker proposed a motion that the grand justices' verdict was in violation of the constitution and the grand justices should be impeached. Out of 39 councilors, 22 supported the motion and passed it. The council has thus sent a document to the Control Yuan accusing the 14 grand justices of deh--ruhliction of duty, allowing their judicial power to overtake legislative power, intervening in executive power, and undermining the constitutional system and demanding for them all to be impeached. Elderly people in the countryside had mixed reactions when they heard about legalisation of same-sex marriage. ==YUNLIN RESIDENT== If people are happy then they can just live happily, other people shouldn't bother them. ==YUNLIN RESIDENT== How would the older generation feel if their son brought another man home? How would the descendents pass on the family name? Elderly people in the countryside do not understand the legal aspects of equal marriage, but because the DPP dominated Yunlin County's Deputy Speaker Su Chun-hao believes that the verdict on Article 748 caused 'social unrest', he proposed a motion for the Control Yuan to impeach the 14 grand justices who arrived at the verdict that same-sex marriage was not unconstitutional. ==SU CHUN-HAO Dep. Speaker, Yunlin County Council== I think they neglected their duty, so their verdict is wrong, anyway, they did not eliminate social dispute but just added to it. ==HUANG WEN-HSIANG Yunlin County Council councillor== You bring up children so that they can have descendents and carry on the family name and come back home, but if you encourage equal marriage, this will change social perceptions and lead to chaos. Su said that both pan blue and pan green councillors supported the impeachment, with 22 out of 39 in support. This was over half. Su emphasized that according to the constitution impeachment can result from dereliction of duty and anyone from the President to the lowest government official could be impeached, including the President of the Control Yuan, so it was not impossible to impeach the grand justices.
