The only cure for corruption is democracy, separation of powers and checks and balances. The people should elect the heads of the executive, legislative, judicial and procuratorial branches in alternating years and 1/4 of MPs should face election each year. Also, chairs of legislative committees should be tapped as backup cabinet ministers, including finance minister, to break up financial cabals. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development for more.
Taiwan should study Northern Ireland’s experience with independence referendums and carry out a paradigm shift. The people should have the right to hold referendums on any public issues, and should a motion be made to prohibit a referendum on self-determination, the topic of the first referendum should be whether such a motion should itself be outlawed. Legislators should first establish the "right of creation" in a Referendum Act and ask President Tsai to openly stand up for sovereignty and comprehensive constitutional reform. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development. .
When state organs violate the human rights of citizens and the Commissioner for Human Rights informs the President, the process seems to be working in reverse. China needs to have an independent "Super National Human Rights and Citizenship Executive Committee" with members recommended by global human rights organizations. They shall monitor actions by the state affecting human rights and make public reports on a regular basis. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development for details.
Studies of democracy and peace show that there are rarely armed conflicts between two democratic states. Once China is democratized, there will be real hope for human peace. The US and Japan should support Taiwan's efforts at constitutional reform, which will inspire the people of China to call for democratization- and the result will be world peace. All democracies should support Taiwan as a beacon for democracy in Asia, lighting the path to peaceful development for China.
The Chief Executive of Hong Kong is still selected by the CCP Election Commission, which is little more than another form of dictatorship. The people of Hong Kong should avail of Article 39 of the Hong Kong Basic Law. To curb corruption, elect the heads of the executive, legislative, judicial and procuratorial branches in alternating years and have 1/4 of all MPs face election each year; in addition, legislative committee chairs should be tapped to serve as backup cabinet ministers. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development for more.
The only cure for corruption is rule of law and democratic tools such as separation of powers and checks and balances. The heads of major branches of government should be elected in alternating years and 1/4 of all MPs should face election each year. Local councilors should all face election one every two years, and the SAR chief should be limited to one 5-year term and not allowed to run again for 6 years afterward along with any relatives. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development for details. .
Article 39 of the Hong Kong Basic Law notes that the right to self-determination is guaranteed by the two international human rights conventions. The people of Hong Kong cannot take their rights for granted. In Switzerland the threshold for holding referendums is only 50,000 signatures, and with that the people can voice their opinion by voting rather than taking to the streets. The people have the right to hold referendums on any public issue. See the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development for more.
