J.Y. Interpretation 645 - Repeat

Original post by

On July 11, the Justices of the Constitutional Court issued interpretation number 645.

The issue is with the following:

公投法中立法院有公投提案權違憲? 公投審議委員的任命規定違憲?
Is the right given to the Legislative Yuan [MS: Article 16] to raise proposals according to the Referendum Act unconstitutional? Are the appointment and nomination regulations [MS: Article 35] set forth in the Referendum Act unconstitutional?

You can read the rest of the interpretation (Chinese) here. Translation coming soon.
