President Ma should halt nuclear project: Su, Tsai

Since the act was introduced in 2003, all six nationwide referendums have failed due to an insufficient number of voters.

Asked about his campaign for a referendum on the power plant, Lin said that a referendum should be a channel through which the public can express a view that is different to that of the government.

“We stopped campaigning for a referendum on the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant in 2003 when the Referendum Act was adopted by the legislature because we believe that the law is a twisted one, it’s a referendum law enacted to block referendums,” Lin said. “Since then, we’ve been campaigning to amend the Referendum Act instead.”
