A recall petition targeting independent lawmaker Freddy Lim has collected 4,300 signatures and was delivered to the Central Election Commission. Taipei City Councilor Chung Hsiao-ping made an appearance with the initiator of the petition, accusing Lim of not doing his job as a lawmaker during the outbreak.
People are casting aspersions on us, calling it the "Wanhua Virus" and blaming Wanhua. Wanhua is represented by one legislator: Freddy Lim, who had the gall to praise the ruling party. He is a political eunuch shamelessly currying favor with the ruling party and Chen Shih-chung. We're done with him.
The commission will have 25 days to review the petition and the organizer of the petition will have another month to collect the 24,000 signatures required for the next phase. As there is more than one petition underway to recall Lim, Chung hopes the groups can join forces during the second phase. Lim has not responded to the petitions.
