Huang Jong-chun Approved as Exam. Yuan President|黃榮村獲65票出任考試院長 周弘憲副院長

The Legislative Yuan descends into chaos before lawmakers were about to vote for the appointment of Examination Yuan candidates. Refusing to vote, the Kuomintang and Taiwan People's Party protested outside the legislative floor, while the New Power Party voted against all of the nominees. Despite opposition, the DPP caucus was able to use its majority to approve Huang Jong-tsun as Examination Yuan president.
 

The Kuomintang caucus protests the Tsai administration's Examination Yuan nomination list outside the legislative floor while the Democratic Progressive Party caucus guards the floor in shifts to force the review through. Both the KMT and Taiwan People's Party caucuses refused to vote.

All four parties drafted their own revisions to abolish the Examination Yuan and Control Yuan, and yet (the Tsai administration) still decides to go ahead and nominate new officials? What is this if it not political rewards? We don't accept this. We will not cast votes for this political reward list.

Not a single person responded. Not a single one turned in (the questionnaire). We have extreme reasonable doubt here that (the nominees) are unqualified to carry out the mission endowed to them by the constitution. Can they really independently exercise examination rights?

The New Power Party caucus, meanwhile, was mad at all the nominees because not a single one of the nominees bothered to respond to its questionnaire. The caucus voted against all of the nominees. When voting was finished, the KMT caucus entered the room with protest signs.

Down with political rewards!

Both the Control Yuan and Examination Yuan need to deal with constitutional amendments in the future. Before the revisions are passed, however, our constitutional laws still exist.

Despite opposition from all the other parties, the DPP caucus was able to use its majority to approve Huang Jong-chun as Examination Yuan president and Chou Hung-hsien as vice president with 65 "yes" votes each.
 
 
 
國民黨在議場外舉牌抗議考委投票,拒絕為考委背書。立法院10日上午進行考試院正、副院長及考試委員人事同意權案投票,民進黨立委排班守議場,甲級動員避免人事案卡關。國民黨團與民眾黨團都拒絕進場為考委投票背書。
 
國民黨團總召林為洲表示,「四黨都有廢考監的版本,結果還是硬要提名,那不是酬庸那是什麼?所以我們沒有辦法接受這樣的酬庸名單,我們不會投票。」
 
時代力量總召邱顯智表示,「沒有任何一個人回覆,沒有任何一個人繳交(問卷),那我們真的非常合理懷疑你到底有沒有適格,能夠賦予憲法所賦予給你的任務,獨立行使考試權?」
 
時代力量不滿考委被提名人沒有回覆問券,但仍會行使立委職權,進場投下「不同意票」。在十一點開票截止前,國民黨團舉看板進入議場呼口號干擾投票。
 
「反對政治酬庸!」
 
民進黨立委陳亭妃表示,「考監兩院確實有需要做一個未來修憲的狀況去做處理,可是在修憲之前,我們憲法規定確實它就是存在的。」
 
10日上午十一點投票截止,在民進黨團人數優勢之下,考試院人事權投票已順利通過。院長被提名人黃榮村得票數已達立委席次過半,和副院長被提名人周弘憲同樣以65票同意票順利通過。
