Taiwan: Discussion of a presidential recall


A recall motion cannot be brought against a president or vice president who has been in office for less than a year, according to the Presidential and Vice Presidential Election and Recall Act. 
Under the act, a proposal to recall the president or vice president can only be carried in the Legislature if it is proposed by at least one-quarter of the lawmakers and supported by not less than two-thirds. 
The recall motion must then be put to a public referendum and can only be adopted if at least half of the electorate votes in the poll and the proposal gains more than half of the valid ballots.
