Handling Registration for the Application, Change, or Termination of Lobbying Cases, and the Declaration of Financial Receipt Statements

  • Hit: 6408

The so-called “lobbying” of the Lobbying Act refers to a lobbyist attempting to influence the lobbied, or its subordinate organizations, in regards to the formation, framing, adoption, altering, or abolishment of laws, policies, or resolutions. He or she expresses opinion either orally or in writing; either directly to the lobbied or to a designated person. The Control Yuan is the disciplinary organization for the president, vice president, legislators, or those designated by the Paragraph 1 of Article 2 of the Articles of Rules Governing the Retirement and Consolation Payment to Political Appointee who are guilty of violating the Lobbying Act. Aside from designating, according to the law, special units or personnel to handle cases, the Control Yuan also has established a special lobbying area on its website, publicly posting registration for the application, changing, or termination of lobbying cases and the reporting of financial receipt statements and other related information.
