KMT lawmaker Fu Kun-chi proposes special investigation unit

KMT lawmaker Fu Kun-chi proposes special investigation unit

2024-02-05

KMT caucus convener Fu Kun-chi wants to create a special investigation unit to tackle corruption. The unit would be directed by the Legislative Yuan, and would have the right to hold hearings and legally require truthful testimony. The proposal has drawn criticism from the green camp, which fears that investigations would be used as a political tool. The Taiwan People’s Party says it will wait for more details before commenting.

Fu Kun-chi (Feb. 3)
KMT caucus convener
We’re fully committed to pushing for a special investigation unit in parliament that has the right to hold hearings, conduct investigations, prohibit contempt for parliament, and require truthful testimony. We want to legally institute this.

Speaking at a banquet in Hualien, KMT lawmaker Fu Kun-chi proposed the idea of a legislative investigation unit. Critics call it an attempt to unlawfully expand power, in violation of the Constitution.

Fu Kun-chi (Feb. 3)
KMT caucus convener
As the DPP has disbanded the Special Investigation Division, we the parliament have a right and responsibility to safeguard the public interest, to ensure that our nation’s operations are transparent and to provide the greatest protection to the people.

Rosalia Wu
DPP caucus secretary-general
After his long tenure as King of Hualien, Fu Kun-chi now wants to be the Xi Jinping of the Legislative Yuan. Setting up a legislative investigation unit is no different from brazenly creating execution chambers to punish dissenting officials, who are guilty until proven innocent. It’s a flagrant act against democracy, an attempt to expand one’s own power.

The Taiwan People’s Party had called for parliamentary reform on the campaign trail, but it declined to comment on Fu’s proposal.

Huang Kuo-chang
Taiwan People’s Party caucus convener
With major policies like this, especially with regard to how their legislation is designed, we have to exercise caution. We’re still not entirely clear on the details of Convener Fu’s proposal, on what the investigation unit entails, and so it’s hard to comment.

Tsai Yi-yu
DPP lawmaker
Each party caucus has its own position on future legislation. We must wait for the caucuses to formally present their proposals. We have to see the provisions to know what the details are. It’s a bit early to weigh in now.

The white and green camps say they’ll wait and see what Fu’s plan entails. With the two camps combined holding a majority, they’re set to have significant sway on the bill’s trajectory.

傅崐萁提"國會特偵組" 綠大酸想當"立院習近平"

2024-02-05

立法院國民黨團總召傅崐萁拋出要透過"國會特偵組",打擊貪腐,遭綠營質疑花蓮王當久了,現在想當國會習近平。對此傅崐萁呼籲民進黨團總召柯建銘回頭是岸,把國家攤在陽光下。但過去特偵組就因爭議走入歷史,連跟藍營一樣主張國會改革的民眾黨都指出,要等看到具體內容,再評論傅崐萁主張。

[[國民黨團總召 傅崐萁(2.3)]]
“國會特偵組,我們全力來推動,包括聽證權,調查權,不得藐視國會權,以及國會作證證言不得說謊,全部入法”

國民黨團總召傅崐萁在花蓮謝票餐會上,提出"國會特偵組",但被外界質疑擴權、違憲。

[[國民黨團總召 傅崐萁]]
“自從民進黨廢除特偵組以後,我們國會議員,有責有權,必須為每一位一起為人民把關,讓我們國家在陽光下,人民得到最大保障權益”

[[民進黨團幹事長 吳思瑤]]
“傅崐萁過去花蓮王當久了,現在想當立法院的習近平嗎,國會設立特偵組,就是堂而皇之在立法院內設立小東廠,可以私設刑堂,不聽話的官員,入人於罪,這是何等反民主,何等無限擴大自己的權利”

而國會改革也是民眾黨主張,傅崐萁的訴求,能獲得他們響應嗎?

[[民眾黨團總召 黃國昌]]
“面對這種重大政策,特別是法案設計,總是比較謹慎一點,還不是很清楚傅總召講的,國會特偵組所指涉到底為何,所以就比較難加以評論”

[[立委(民) 蔡易餘]]
“每個黨團都會有他們對於立法院未來提案的主張,這部份等每個黨團正式提出,然後看到條文才知道內容,現在評論都有點早”

白綠陣營靜觀其變,畢竟兩黨聯合仍是過半,就看藍營能推出什麼提案。
