KMT Legislators Ask Economic Affairs Minister to Resign 藍委占發言台 送王美花"雞排"諷失信 藍委占發言台 送王美花「雞排」諷失信

Taipower's chair and president have resigned as a result of the power outage. Premier Su Tseng-chang apologized to the country, without responding to questions about whether he believed Economic Affairs Minister Wang Mei-hua should step down.


There was a large power outage throughout Taiwan on March 3, affecting more than 5.49 million households. Premier Su Tseng-chang apologized to the country before going to the Legislative Yuan for inquiry. Both Taipower's chair and the president have submitted their resignation as a result, and Economic Affairs Minister Wang Mei-hua has asked to be reprimanded. However, some thought it was not enough and asked Wang to resign. Premier Su did not respond directly to this.

Su Tseng-chang, Premier: “The entire nation was greatly affected. I would like to deeply apologize to the people who are inconvenienced by this. I also specifically requested the Ministry of Economic Affairs to review Taipower and submit a written report in full detail. The most severe punishment will be handed out after the investigation.”

Wang Mei-hua, Minister of Economic Affairs: “The Premier asked us to provide a written report within three days on the accident's cause and how we will improve. The question of punishments will be dealt with after three days.”

Wang did not respond much regarding her own punishment. In addition, this is the fifth power outage since the Tsai government took office, arousing strong dissatisfaction among opposition parties. Wang once said that there would be no power supply problems this year and would be willing to bet fried chicken fillets on it. KMT legislators occupied the podium to prevent Premier Su's report. They offered "Mei-hua brand" fried chicken fillets to Wang to eat.

Tseng Ming-chung, KMT Legislative Caucus Whip: “The frequency of power failures is becoming more and more, and the areas affected are growing in size. Therefore, the KMT is demanding Minister Wang to take responsibility by resigning.”

The KMT launched an attack inside the main chamber, while the TPP held placards to protest outside the venue. Not only did they demand Wang resign, but they also want the government to set up a compensation mechanism with a single service window. They also demanded Su, Wang, and Taipower report on the country's energy policy on the 8th.

Chiu Chen-yuan, TPP Legislative Caucus Whip: “The government is negligent in its managerial incompetence. I don't care if you want to blame it on human negligence, or talk about the power supply's stability or vulnerable parts of the grid. This is the result of your ruling party's incompetence.”

The Tsai administration's energy policy was questioned due to the power outage. Opposition parties not only called for Wang to step down, but also proposed a cabinet reshuffle. 

 

 

 

昨日全台無預警大停電,波及549萬多戶,行政長蘇貞昌到立法院備詢前先向國人道歉,面對台電董事長、總經理請辭,經濟部長王美花自請處分,外界認為還不夠,點名王美花應該請辭下台,蘇貞昌沒有正面回應。

行政院長蘇貞昌表示:「全國用戶受到很大的影響,我要對因此受到不便的業者民眾表示最深的歉意,我也特別要求經濟部對台電要完整地詳細地書面報告,調查給我要做最嚴厲的處分。」

經濟部長王美花說:「院長請我們在3天之內,把這個事故的原因、還有怎麼改善提出報告,3天之後對於責任的問題,會在院裡會再處理。」

自請處分到什麼程度,王美花沒有多做回應,再加上蔡政府上任以來,第五度停電,引發在野黨強烈不滿,由於王美花曾經以「賭雞排」表示今年不會有供電問題,國民黨團上午占領主席台,杯葛蘇貞昌施政報告,特別拿著「美花牌跳電雞排」請王美花吃。

國民黨團總召曾銘宗指出:「(停電)頻率越來越高,規模越來越大,所以國民黨團要求王美花下台負責。」

場內有國民黨發動突襲,場外有民眾黨團舉牌抗議,不只要王美花請辭下台,針對產業損失設立單一窗口,建立補償機制,並要求蘇貞昌在8日偕同王美花和台電針對我國能源政策專案報告。

民眾黨團總召邱臣遠表示:「政府在管理失能上的疏忽,我不管你是要追究在人為的疏忽,或者是說你供電的穩定度,或者是說電網脆弱的部分,這個就是你執政黨的失能。」

全台大停電,蔡政府能源政策遭到質疑,在野黨不只要求王美花下台,更提出內閣改組,也呼籲中央盡快將民生用電和工業用電的補償機制訂出來。
