The Legislative Yuan passed the bill of Constitutional Amendment on August 23 last year. The National Assembly approved this Amendment on June 7, 2005. According to this Amendment provisions the Legislative Yuan seats will be reduced from 225 to 113, in which, 78 elected from single-member electoral district, 35 from the proportion of party vote turnout. This Constitutional Amendment is recognized as a reform of Taiwan’s Legislative power. However, the author’s view point is that the next reform should be professionalizing the Committee’s function and uncovering the party coordination in Legislative Yuan. The Committee of Congress, both the House and the Senate, work well in preparing legislative data, research and investigations, Either Committees or sub-Committees has the specific functions and concerns. Committee members are selected by seniority. Though the functions of Legislative Yuan’s Committee are similar to the US Congress, but Taiwan does not take the seniority system and ignores Committee’s requirement of professional knowledge. My research assumes that covert party coordination is the reason why the Legislative Yuan is critically inefficient. This research tries to dig out the strategy to enhance the legislative efficiency in Taiwan.
