Divesting Wang of his status kills democracy

By Chiu Li-li 邱莉莉

Voters may not necessarily agree with at-large legislators being unilaterally removed from their posts. From this viewpoint, the KMT’s efforts to deprive Wang of his status as legislator definitely runs contrary to democratic principles. It trespasses on the public’s will as expressed through their votes, and it mangles the spirit of the electoral system.

Chiu Li-li is a Greater Tainan city councilor.
