Pan-Blue Blasts DPP's Closed-door Meeting as "Black Box" Operations 討論五倍券沒揪? 藍委政院外抗議

Conflicts broke out outside the Executive Yuan as Kuomintang lawmakers had serious physical jostles with the police. They criticized the government's decision to issue "quintuple vouchers" without out-of-pocket expenses as a backroom deal, and insisted on giving cash instead.


Kuomintang lawmakers renew their call for cash distributions over stimulus vouchers outside the Executive Yuan. Security guards block them from entering the building. Inside, Democratic Progressive Party lawmakers and senior government officials continued their closed-door meeting.

Johnny Chiang, KMT Chair:” They're having a secret meeting right now. Premier Su [Tseng-chang] is only willing to speak with lawmakers from his own party. Are they having factional dialogue, or are they really taking what the people want into consideration? The people want cash. They want cash, plain and simple.” 

Executive Yuan Deputy Secretary-General Ho Pei-shan later made an appearance, telling KMT lawmakers Vice Premier Shen Jong-chin would meet with them later.

Following the two-hour closed-door meeting, DPP caucus whip Ker Chien-ming told the media. There were 45 pan-green lawmakers at the meeting and 30 spoke. According to Ker, Executive Yuan officials were willing to listen to the opinions of all the pan-green lawmakers.

Ker Chien-ming, DPP Caucus Whip:” Executive Yuan (officials) listened to what party members had to say today and made this decision. Of course, there were some members that asked some questions, including smaller-value (vouchers) and length of time. Many small details were discussed.” 

Ker also said vouchers would be distributed, possibly digitally, around October. According to reports, Premier Su Tseng-chang wouldn't let go of the stimulus voucher format, but relented on making citizens pay for the vouchers up front.

 

 

國民黨立委到行政院大門前灑下玩具紙鈔,高喊不要五倍券,普發現金才實在,更要求進入行政院,遭到維安警力阻擋,雙方一度發生推擠、衝突,因為此時,行政院與民進黨立委討論五倍券的會議正在進行中,讓未受邀的國民黨很不滿,批評是密室協商。

國民黨主席江啟臣:「現在正在密室協商,蘇院長只願意跟執政黨的委員對話,我不曉得他們是派系在對話還是真的在接受人民聲音。人民的意見,發現金比較實在、發現金最實在、最直接,人民的聲音就是這麼簡單。」

行政院副秘書長何佩珊隨後出面,與國民黨立委溝通,表示將由副院長沈榮津和他們會面,再度引發藍委們不滿。

從上午9點開始進行的會議,進行兩個小時後,總召柯建銘、立委羅致政等人才步出會議室,柯建銘轉述今天會議主要以交流意見為主,[畫面來源:何志偉提供]總共有45個綠委與會,有30個人輪流發言,政院也接受各方的意見,確定做出了改變。

民進黨立院黨團總召柯建銘:「今天所有發言當然對於行政院接受各方面意見以後,做出這樣的改變是確定的。當然有些黨團成員提出一些問題包括小額、使用多久、使用到什麼時候,包括很細微的面向都有討論。」

根據轉述,蘇貞昌會中定調推五倍券,全民免出一千,具體的振興5倍券何時發放?柯建銘透露差不多在10月初,並考慮到疫苗覆蓋率,同時也有機會以數位加碼的方式,來照顧小商家、小攤商。
