Burkina Faso: les Verts participent à la transition démocratique

Du 28 au 31 Octobre 2014, le Burkina Faso a écrit une nouvelle page de son histoire politique. L’Assemblée Nationale a été appelée à voter la modification de l’article 37 de la constitution le 30 Octobre 2014 pour prolonger le mandat du Président de la république. Mais, ce vote n’aura jamais lieu et pour cause un soulèvement populaire sans précédent amènera le Président Blaise Compaoré à démissionner le 31 Octobre 2014 ouvrant ainsi la voix à une période de transition démocratique de 12 mois…

Between 28 and 31 October 2014, Burkina Faso wrote a new chapter in the country’s political history. On 30 October the National Assembly was invited to vote an amendment to article 37 of the Constitution allowing an extension of the President’s mandate. However, this vote never took place due an unprecedented popular uprising. President Blaise Compaoré was forced to resign on 31 October, thus opening the way to a 12-month democratic transition period…

History was made on September 22, 2014 when David Coon, leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick, captured the riding of Fredericton South in that province's general election. Coon finished 334 votes ahead of an incumbent Conservative cabinet minister to win the Green Party's first seat in the New Brunswick legislature. Contesting only their second provincial general election, the Green Party of New Brunswick captured 6.6% of the popular vote, a solid gain of 2.1% from 2010.


2014 九合一選舉,綠黨參選實況

2014 縣市長、議員選舉綠黨確定參戰!






台灣綠黨與全球 91 個綠黨廢核立場和行動始終如一,我們主張立即廢除核四,核一、二、三廠 提前徐役,倡議降低用電需求成長、發展長期綠色能源的能源政策

市政層級上,積極鼓勵市民與企業使用再生能源、降低夏季用電高峰與市區溫度、加強推廣非 核與永續價值等環境教育,並積極檢視核災的應 變措施與相關疏散計劃。


台灣目前各地議會的資訊公開、透明化程度不 一,民意代表當選後難以監督,部分地區不僅會議記錄沒有公開上網,甚至議員的出缺席狀況也難以調閱。綠黨主張開放市議會,推動議會透明化、定期與選民報告相關政策,鼓勵公民與綠黨一起,監督國會的同時,更要看緊議會。

綠黨主張多席次的地方選舉應改為「兩票制」, 一半席次由政黨票產生,鼓勵分裂投票,改變綁椿、派系與金權政治的選舉生態,讓小黨有機會在議會代表多元社會的聲音。只有打破二大黨壟斷,才能真正發揮市政監督的功能。

Youth in Politics - Way Ahead

From being perceived as irresponsible and reckless to being called the strength of the nation, the youth of Nepal have come a very long way. To change the system, you have to be in the system. An unanswered question for the past few years is still a million dollar question to be answered. Some serious steps should be taken to bring youth out on the floor of mainstream politics. For now, one can only hope that during the next elections, more youth will vote, more will got elected and less will say, “How does it even matter? It’s not going to make a difference to me.” Because it does, it really does matter.
