Referendums\Referenda (you choose which ) in Taiwan
Referendums\a in Taiwan are an unprecedented policy especially as the Taiwanese consider that it is an important stage in the process of developing from an immature country into a developed democratic country. Actually many policy decision issues were decided by referendums\a around the world in many democratic countries, but Taiwan's international political position is highly sensitive, therefore the result of a referendum in Taiwan will cause different reponses from all kinds of people.
The referendum was not approved by voters this time, not only for the arguable presidential election but also the power of the opposition party. (I must say that this sentence doesn't make much sense to me at all and I can't work out what they are trying to say) As a result of the dubious presidential vote, the referendum was ignored and lost its original purpose. Most people targetted the outcome of the presidential election more than the result of referendum and that meant the referendum was not valued seriously. What are the problems of referendums\a after all? It relates to the wording of the questions, the timing, or anything else those which worth to realize the truthful cause by the goverment (again, this last part doesn'tmean much to me)
Now, the President of Taiwan has already been confirmed. It is important to rethink the policy of referendum by the governing party though most of the voters did not support the referendum. No matter what kind of opposition there is, people who live in Taiwan hope everything grows to maturity steadily.[/quote]
I've done what I can for the moment, but parts just don't add upto anything to me. I'll try again before I go to bed.
