The Central Election Commission (CEC) could send a draft redistricting plan for the next legislative election to the Legislative Yuan for deliberation as soon as today, a CEC spokesman said yesterday. The spokesman noted that the CEC has worked on the plan since last year, taking into consideration related laws, draft redistricting plans of city and county election commissions, as well as the views of various parties, academics and experts. A CEC meeting passed the draft plan on May 19, the spokesman said, but the plan has yet to be sent to the Legislative Yuan because some technical issues needed to be addressed. The CEC has to send the draft plan to the the Legislative Yuan by the end of this month, the spokesman said. After receiving the plan, the legislature should give its consent 13 months before the term of its current legislators expires.
