Taipei: Taiwan's opposition-controlled parliament on Tuesday passed amendment bills that reduce the powers of the president. The move is being seen as pro-China and has sparked protests across the country and thousands of people have taken to the streets. The amendments, brought by the opposition Nationalist Party and its allies, will give parliament sweeping powers to control the budget, including defense spending. This is being seen by many as pro-China. However, it is not clear whether these bills will become law or not.

The Executive Yuan, the executive branch of the government headed by the Prime Minister, can veto the bills or send it to the President. If the Executive Yuan or the President do not decide, the bills will not become law. Thousands of people gathered outside the parliament against these amendments. The Nationalist Party has officially supported unification with China. Taiwan separated from China during the civil war in 1949. After the elections held in January this year, the Nationalist Party got a majority in the Parliament but Lai Ching Te of the Democratic Progressive Party won the presidency. The Democratic Progressive Party is in favor of Taiwan's independence.
