Bill to reduce President's power passed in Taiwan, know why it is being considered pro-China?


President Lai Cheng Te, who was elected this year in Taiwan, is considered a critic of China. China also hates him a lot. But the parliament there is occupied by the Nationalist (KMT) party which is considered a party supporting China.

The KMT party has passed a bill from the parliament which can reduce the power of the President of Taiwan. The most important change from this bill will be that the control over the country's budget, especially the expenditure on defense, will come under the jurisdiction of the parliament where the opposition parties have an edge.

Will this bill become a law?

After the passing of this bill, there are widespread protests across the country. Thousands of people have come out on the streets and are calling this bill fatal for Taiwan's democracy. However, things are not very clear yet whether the passed bill will become a law or not.

If the Prime Minister of Taiwan vetoes the bill, it will not become a law. It is also possible that the Prime Minister of Taiwan sends it to the President. The President will have to declare the new bill as a law within 10 days. If this does not happen, then the bill passed by the Parliament will not become a law.

What is the stance of Taiwan's parties?

The KMT party is in opposition in Taiwan. This party is also called nationalist. This party advocates the unification of Taiwan with China, while the Democratic Progressive Party of the current President Lai Cheng Te believes that Taiwan is an independent country and it will run according to democratic traditions.

Taiwan came into existence as a separate country after the civil war of 1949. Since then, China has been trying to gain complete control over it. In this regard, it has often adopted an aggressive stance, which has been condemned by Western countries and they support the views of the Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan.

America and China on Taiwan

The Democratic Progressive Party has accused Taiwan's opposition parties KMT and Taiwan People's Party of trying to weaken Taiwan's democracy through the new bill. At the same time, the KMT party calls it a necessary reform.

Taiwan has been under martial law under the KMT party for nearly 40 years. China has been constantly violating Taiwan's border by sending planes close to Taiwan. The US has been cooperating with Taiwan's security despite not having formal diplomatic relations with it.
