Taipei, Aug. 9 (CNA) The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has launched online polls on
controversial issues related to marriage, including that of same-sex marriage, to gauge public opinion on plans being drafted or policies being carried out.
Among the questions are: “Do you support establishing a ‘Same-sex Partnership Act’?”, “Do you support legislation that gives homosexuals the right to have ‘marriage-like’ or ‘marital’ relations?”, and “Should adultery be decriminalized?”
Each issue on the platform at http://join.gov.tw/openup/ is open for discussion for three months, with Internet users welcome to vote in favor of or against a certain policy. [FULL STORY]
