The two-thirds quorum and the three-fourths affirmative vote requirements set forth in Article 174, Subparagraph 1, of the Constitution are mandates for the adoption of the constitutional amendment resolution. The one-third quorum and a one-half affirmative vote requirement set forth in Article 8 of the Organic Act of National Assembly govern resolutions made for matters other than the constitutional amendment, and hence are not in contravention to Article 174, Subparagraph 1, of the Constitution. With respect to how Reading Meetings proceed and what quorums and amounts of affirmative vote of respective Reading Meetings are, the National Assembly has he authority to decide following the prtinciples of parliamentary autonomy and within the scope of the Constitution. Of course, it is needless to say that every self-governance decision shall be made in accordance with the principles of the constitutional structure of free democracy. Articles 42, 43, 44, Subparagraph 2, and Article 46, Subparagraph 12, of the Rules of the National Assembly Proceedings as amended on April 7, 1992, on the basis of Article 174, Subparagraph 1, of the Constitution, require a two-thirds quorum and three-fourths affirmative vote for the adoption of resolutions of the amendment to the Constitution and for the ratification of the amendment proposal submitted by the Legislative Yuan in Second Reading and Third Reading Meetings. The same rules are silent with regard to the quorum in the First Reading Meeting, except for Article 43 which requires a review of the proposal after general discussions in the First Reading Meeting. According to the petition and accompanying materials submitted by the National Assembly, the one-third quorum and two-thirds quorum were both once adopted in different First Reading Meetings by the first and second sessions of the National Assembly when amending the provisions of the Temporary Provisions Effective during the Period of National Mobilization for Suppression of the Communist Rebellion. Therefore, the First Reading proceeding for the constitutional amendment cannot be equated to the adoption of the constitutional amendment resolution, and its quorum requirement falls into the domain of parliamentary autonomy and will not give rise to constitutional issues regardless what quorum is adopted, the one-third quorum as promulgated by Article 8 of the Organic Act of National Assembly, or the two-thirds quorum as mandated by Article 174, Subparagraph 1, of the Constitution, or a quorum according to rules of general meetings.
