According to Taiwan's "Tongsen News Cloud" report, the "Reverse Penetration Law" pushed by the DPP was passed on the 31st in Taiwan's "Legislative Yuan" for the third reading. Intervening in the election can be closed for 5 years and fined NT $ 10 million. Because the time point is just before the 2020 election, the outside world has questioned whether the DPP has deliberately operated for the sake of the election. Pang Jianguo, a professor at Taiwan Cultural University, believes that the DPP has pushed the "bill" for three reasons. The first is to sell a sense of "desperation", the second is to explain to urgent "independence" factions, and the third is to respond to possible unsatisfactory elections. "Why have to pass before the election? Why not wait for new public opinion to wait for fuller discussion by the 'committee'? Normal 'bills' will not do this, let alone such 'bills' that have such a significant impact."
Pang Jianguo said that the first reason promoted by the "Reverse Osmosis Law" has a lot to do with "a sense of demise." The DPP has begun to sell "a sense of national desperation" this year. It can be seen from the Hong Kong incident that after the Hong Kong incident calmed down, it replaced the "reverse penetration law" and continued to use the atmosphere of cross-strait confrontation to win the support of voters.
Pang Jianguo pointed out that the second reason is to give an explanation to the urgent "independence" factions of the Green Camp. Tsai Ing-wen advocated "maintaining the status quo" in cross-strait policies, which attracted a lot of dissatisfaction among the Green Camp's anxious "independence" factions, and attracted a lot of criticism. Sound of dissatisfaction.
Pang Jianguo mentioned that the third reason is the possible unsatisfactory response to the election results. Because whether it is the election of the leader of the Taiwan region or the "Legislative Yuan", there are still great variables at present. The DPP has no overwhelming advantage, and it will worry that the seats in the "Legislative Yuan" will not be more than half. In this way, it will be difficult to continue to promote the "reverse osmosis law" in the future, so it is so anxious to pass the election before the election.
Pang Jianguo also said that because of passing the election before the election, many voices appeared in the room, saying that the "reverse osmosis method" may be used in unsatisfactory elections. This voice is increasing, that is, the election was subject to mainland interference. It is not necessary to say that the result this time.
Pang Jianguo believes that the "Bill" has been successfully passed. As long as it is signed and announced, it will be officially on the road. There is a great chance to catch up with the election on January 11. "So time will make everyone feel weird, why not Want to pass before the election? Why not wait for new public opinion to wait for fuller discussion by the 'committee'? Normal 'bills' will not do this, let alone 'bills' that have such a significant impact. "
