The Referendum Review Commission is to vote on Nov. 24 on whether to screen two referendum proposals, a commission source said yesterday. The commission will sponsor public hearings on the issue before deciding whether it will accept and screen a proposal on retrieving the stolen assets of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) -- initiated by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) -- and another anti-graft referendum proposal -- initiated by the pan-blue alliance of the KMT and the People First Party, Commission Chairman Kao Yuang-kuang (高永光) said. Before the proposals are submitted to the Referendum Review Commission for screening, the DPP and the pan-blue alliance will each have to gain the endorsement of 0.5 percent of the country's eligible voters, or 82,500 people, for their respective proposals, according to Kao.
