Apple Daily Endorses Saturday's Referendums

Apple Daily's editorial page today called on Taiwanese voters to vote for social justice by voting for both referendums in Saturday's election. It correctly points out that both referendums--the KMT's anti-corruption referendum and the DPP's KMT Party Assets referendum--are serious issues that enjoy strong support from the electorate. And as everyone's favorite tabloid points out, constitutional government is not a joke, and voters should punish both parties for playing games with the people's right to direct democracy. The KMT is singled out for extra scorn for having first put forward referendums and then calling for a boycott of their own referendum.

Pleased to hear that the KMT's abandonment of its own referendum is receiving some play in the local media.

I find it incomprehensible that this is not a major issue coming into this weekend's legislative election. Why voters would put any faith in a party that has so deliberately wasted tax-payers money is beyond me.

Trust doesn't seem to be a big issue with voters here sometimes.
