The time is now ripe for reform of the NCC

By Liu Kuan-teh 劉冠德

To play a constructive role as the "fourth branch of the government," we need a non-partisan, truly independent NCC. There should be no political interference in the nomination and review procedure of selecting its members. Only through institutionalization of the NCC and exclusion of political influence can we enjoy a free and healthy media.
