It means that the National Communications and Communication Commission (NCC) will decide whether to let Zhongtian TV change its license in the near future. The party who opposed the replacement of Zhongtian TV's licenses believed that the NCC should uphold professionalism. Must do something, don't let Zhongtian TV change the photo. However, the party who demanded that Zhongtian TV continue to operate, criticized the Tsai Ing-wen government for not suppressing freedom of speech and press, and arbitrarily shutting down news channels with different opinions. This move will set Taiwan's democracy backwards and ideologically The Kuomintang and the People's Party, which are closely related to Zhongtian photo background removing TV, even more strongly criticized Tsai Ing-wen's move as a return to Taiwan's dark authoritarian era. Interestingly, this criticism of the Kuomintang and the People's Party is actually based on the assumption that the NCC is not an independent agency and cannot perform its functions impartially and will be influenced by the ruling party. Since the news bureau in charge of the news media was abolished at that time and the NCC was re-established, it was hoped that an independent and impartial agency could be established to manage the media. Therefore, if the opposition party believed that the current NCC was unable to perform its functions impartially, what should be done was to initiate amendments to the law. It is self-contradictory that the NCC can be free from the influence of the ruling party in the future. mn6jmhdwkuncp0sgkf3u4fq5fjapy7 Photo Credit: WebMD In fact, the Kuomintang is the most qualified to speak about whether the NCC is an independent agency, because when the NCC was established, the Kuomintang held the majority of seats in the Legislative Yuan. Under the strong leadership of the Kuomintang, the National Communications and Communication Committee Organic Law was passed to allocate the number of NCC members that each political party can elect based on the ratio of party seats in the Legislative Yuan.
