Ruling party reacts to ‘surprise’ concession made by legislative speaker (2014/04/06)

Speaker Wang Jin-pyng’s pledge to legislate a monitoring mechanism before reviewing the trade pact has brought to light stark friction within the ruling party. Several lawmakers who were present for Wang’s statement criticized the speaker by saying they felt Wang betrayed them and sold out the KMT. But others, such as KMT Legislator Lo Shu-lei, spoke out in Wang’s defense. 

When Speaker Wang Jin-pyng visited the Legislature today, he was joined by fellow KMT lawmakers. Party caucus whip Lin Hung-chih and Legislator Alex Fai claim they did not know that Wang would pledge to put review of the trade-in-services pact on hold. The caucus called an urgent press conference so members could state their positions.

Alex Fai
KMT Legislator
I felt we were tricked into going there. It seemed like we were endorsing his pledge. Personally, I feel a strong sense of betrayal, says Fai.

Lo Shu-lei 
KMT Legislator
I think the speaker’s statement was great. Over 10 lawmakers told him that he did a great job. I really have no idea what the caucus is doing, says KMT Legislator Lo Shu-lei.

Wang’s position has left the KMT in a bind. The party still insists that the trade-in-services pact must pass, but it does not have the support of the person who set’s the Legislature’s agenda. 

Lin Hung-chih
KMT Caucus Whip
(Wang) now says that further negotiations related to the cross-strait trade-in-services pact will not take place. We believe previous negotiations are still valid, however, so the pact should be discussed and voted on line-by-line, says Lin. 

The KMT caucus insists the services pact can be reviewed in parallel with legislation to monitor cross-strait agreements. But it does not have the legislative speaker on board.

國黨團錯愕

立法院長王金平,今天在議場外宣佈,兩岸監督條例完成立法前,不再針對服貿協議召集朝野協商,被解讀是支持"先立法再審查",這可讓陪同的國民黨團幹部非常錯愕,甚至批評王金平,出賣了國民黨,堅持立法跟審查應該並行,不過黨內也有立委認為,王金平的動作對朝野都有利,呼籲黨團應該要認清現實。

立法院長王金平,帶著朝野立委,大喊口號,不過,國民黨政策會執行長林鴻池,和站在最旁邊的費鴻泰,本以為只是來只是陪王金平來看學生,卻意外變成幫王金平背書,氣得黨團趕緊開記者會,跟王金平撇清關係。

[[國民黨團副書記長 費鴻泰]]
感覺上把我們騙去,然後好像我們幫他背書,我個人真的是有非常強烈,一種被出賣的感覺。

[[立委(國) 羅淑蕾]]
我們覺得王院長講得很好,其實王院長講過以後,差不多有十幾個委員跑去跟王院長說,王院長你處理得很好,那我們不知道黨團在幹什麼。

王金平將黨團一軍,也有人叫好,不過黨團幹部的面子,實在掛不住,強調就算不再朝野協商,兩岸服貿協議,還是非審不可。

[[國民黨政策會執行長 林鴻池]]
現在他針對兩岸服貿協議,不再進行協商,但是我們認為當然以前協商的還算數,所以我們認為,這還是應該要逐條討論,逐條表決。

林鴻池說,黨團做了決議,認為立法和審查是可並行的,王金平的說法,卻讓外界解讀為先立法、再審查。
