China Taiwan Net, December 14th According to a report by the "Central News Agency" of Taiwan, the Taiwan authorities "China Election Commission" yesterday (13th) approved the 2020 "Legislative Yuan" election of political parties and candidates. Among them, former Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian nominated by Taiwan ’s “independent” party “One Side Action Party” was not allowed to register as a candidate for violating the “Public Official Election Removal Law”.
Chen Shui-bian previously posted a video on the social networking site Facebook, claiming that whether he could be selected as a "non-regional legislator" is not a legal issue, but a political issue and whether Cai Yingwen nodded in agreement.
The Taiwan authorities' "election committee" issued a press release yesterday afternoon stating that the "election committee" today held a "committee meeting" during which the "10th 'Legislative Party Election Party and Candidates' Qualifications" was approved. Candidates for ethnic "legislators" and "elections" will be held on the 18th to draw the names of political parties and candidates; candidates for "regional legislators" will be held on the same day by the counties and municipal election committees. The Taiwan Election Commission will announce the list of candidates on December 31.
The "China Election Commission" also stated at the meeting that Chen Shui-bian was not allowed to register as a candidate because he violated the relevant provisions of the Law on the Removal and Removal of Public Officials. The provision states that those who have committed the crime of corruption and who have been convicted by sentencing cannot be registered as candidates.
After Chen Shui-bian stepped down as the leader of the Taiwan region in 2008, he was sentenced to prison for corruption and other cases, and has been granted medical treatment outside prison since January 2015. (China Taiwan Net Jia Ruolan)
