Premier bends a little to student demands, but two sides remain far apart (2014/03/28)

After showing virtually no willingness to compromise, the ruling KMT has become more accepting of some of the student demands. Today Premier Jiang Yi-huah said the government is open to drafting a screening mechanism for future cross-strait agreements. But he is unwilling for review of the cross-strait trade-in-services pact to be postponed until this screening mechanism is in place. ##

Premier Jiang once again appeared before reporters to defend the government’s position on the cross-strait trade-in-services pact. He also commented on Sunday’s student-organized mass demonstration on Ketagalan Boulevard.

Jiang Yi-huah 
Premier
The leaders of this student movement should take responsibility for calling for such a large demonstration. After calling so many people to go to Ketagalan Boulevard to protest, you must ensure that the activity goes according to the original plan and ends peacefully. 

Jiang also asked police to show restraint. Jiang’s comments come days after students were forcibly evicted from the Executive Yuan, with many alleging an excessive use of force. Jiang also described the government’s position regarding demands put forward by students in recent days. 

Jiang Yi-huah 
Premier
We’ve already made important concessions by expressing a willingness to send the bill back to legislative committee for a substantive line-by-line review and for a line-by-line vote to take place. This should quell the public’s criticism of procedural flaws. We are also generally open to drafting new legislation for monitoring cross-strait agreements.

As for whether Jiang would step down to take responsibility for the violent eviction of protesters, the premier said he would continue working until the protests are resolved.

江揆記者會

學生團體在這個禮拜天號召群眾上凱道包圍總統府,今天行政院長江宜樺表示,他尊重每一個公民團體表達意見的權利,也呼學運領袖把人帶上凱道,也要負責任地讓活動和平落幕,至於他會不會為反服貿爭議負起政治責任,江宜樺說,事情告一段落後,留給人民公評。

重申政府對於服貿協議的立場,江宜樺再次親上火線,並向這個禮拜天,號召群眾上街包圍凱道的學生團體喊話。

[[行政院長 江宜樺]]
“號召這樣的群眾運動的學運決策核心,必須要負起社會責任,如果說要把這麼多群眾,號召到凱達格蘭大道進行抗爭的話,也就同樣的必須要很負責的,讓這個活動按照原訂的計畫,和平落幕”

江揆也要求員警執法有分寸,畢竟,學生日前佔領行政院的行動,警方行動遭質疑,是暴力鎮壓。對於學生連日來的訴求,江揆也說明政府立場。

[[行政院長 江宜樺]]
“是不是應該考慮要讓法案,退回委員會,重新進行逐條審議,逐條表決,我們已經做出這樣重要的讓步情況之下,能夠平息社會大眾,對於過去程序瑕疵所批評的(地方) ,至於協議 監督機制的法制化,我們基本上是抱持開放的態度”

此外,對於江揆是否要為此事件負責下台? 他表示,等到整個事情結束後,社會自有公評,屆時他也會正式來回應此問題。
