Chen Continues Working as Usual After Recall Election 陳柏惟今回立院質詢 多位綠委鼓勵打氣

Taiwan Statebuilding Party legislator Chen Po-wei lost his seat in a recall vote on Oct. 23. On Oct. 25, he went back to work as usual. He didn't comment too much and only said that he wished for other candidates of his party to run to fill his seat.



Chen Po-wei, Legislator (TSP) vs. Tung Chen-Yuan, Minister of OCAC:"Morning, Legislator Chen. Morning, Chairperson Tung. I noticed you visited the United States earlier on."

After losing his seat in a recall vote on Sat., Oct. 23, Taiwan Statebuilding Party (TSP) Legislator Chen Po-wei went back to work as usual for another round of interpellation. Before the interpellation started, many DPP legislators gave him words of encouragement. Ker Chien-ming, the Chief Convener of the DPP legislative caucus, spoke with him briefly.

Chen Po-wei, Legislator (TSP):"OK, ok, ok. We still have a week. It's alright."

Chen did not express any opinion on whether there should be an amendment to the Public Officials Election and Recall Act. He only said he wished for other TSP candidates to run to fill his seat.

Chen Po-wei, Legislator (TSP):"We (TSP) have many young people. They need to discuss with their parents first before running and check if any of their ancestors or family members have commited crimes."

New speculations point to independent legislator Freddy Lim representing Wanhua District of Taipei City being the next one on the list to be recalled. As the next target of recall, Freddy Lim said he is not in the position to comment on whether there should be an amendment to the Public Officials Election and Recall Act. Lim said he hasn't thought too much about what to do if he 

Freddy Lim, Legislator (Independent):"I think it takes some time to figure out the situation and what is the best strategy to take. We would of course look at this problem very seriously."

DPP expressed different opinions recently on how the recall act should be revised or amended. KMT Chairperson Eric Chu commented saying that the DPP is only considering changes that are to their advantage.

Eric Chu, KMT Chairperson:"They only want what is right for them. They feel the threshold for removal is too high one day and again feel the threshold is too low the next day. If the target of recall is a KMT official they want the threshold to be as low as possible and if the target of recall is a pan-green official they want the threshold to be as high as possible."

Chu said that Chen would have lost the recall election under the original recall act anyway. He did not give further comment representing the KMT on whether the recall act should be revised or amended. 

 

 

基進黨立委 陳柏惟 vs. 僑委會委員長 童振源:「 陳委員早安,委員長早安。(我有注意到,前陣子你去美國。)」


罷免通過後,陳柏惟第一次質詢恢復台語提問,在他上質詢台前,多位民進黨立委也來為他打氣,民進黨團總召柯建銘也和他短暫交談。

基進黨立委 陳柏惟表示:「好啦!好啦!好啦!我們還有一個禮拜,不要這樣。」

對於這次罷免通過,陳柏惟對是否應該修改選罷法沒有意見,至於留下來的立委席次,他希望基進黨能繼續提名黨員參選。

基進黨立委 陳柏惟表示:「我們(基進黨)年輕人比較多,很多都要回去跟爸爸、媽媽商量一下,因為到我的樣子,可能要先看一下祖宗十八代,有沒有人犯罪、偷竊。」

下一個可能被立案罷免投票的台北市中正萬華區立委林昶佐,對於選罷法是否該修法,他回應然被點名是下個對象,就不太適合說這個,目前還沒有思考如何應對罷免案。

無黨籍立委 林昶佐表示:「到底什麼樣子的策略是最對的?我想這個還是,也不可能一時之間,就真的,可以去把它規劃清楚。當然,我們會非常嚴肅的,來因應這個問題。」

目前民進黨內對於罷免門檻是否該修法,有不同看法。國民黨主席朱立倫說民進黨只選擇對自己有利的方向。

國民黨主席 朱立倫表示:「只要他們認為是對的,就對。 昨天嫌罷免門檻過高,今天又嫌罷免門檻過低。那只要罷免對象是國民黨的,他們就覺得門檻越低越好。如果罷免門檻是綠營的,他們就門檻越高越好。」

朱立倫強調,就算是過去舊的選罷法制度,陳柏惟的罷免還是會通過,不過朱立倫並沒有說明國民黨對此議題的態度。
