According to sources Taiwan government earlier said the Saturday referendum would not affect it bringing in the changes required by the court ruling. Meanwhile conservative groups asked whether the legislation defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman in Taiwan's Civil Code should remain unchanged, while the Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) activists demanded equal marriage rights.

 


Reportedly initial results suggested the conservatives received overwhelming support, while gay rights activists failed. Furthermore the authorities now were expected to pass a special law, without amending the Civil Code. As per report campaigners fear the eventual legislation would be weaker. As per report from Taiwanese media “One possible outcome could be that gay couples would be given legal protection but not allow marrying”.

Moreover President Tsai Ing-wen, who quit as leader of Taiwan's governing party after defeats in local elections, admitted that her party DPP suffered on key local issues. He said "Our efforts weren't enough and we let down all our supporters”. Hence the marriage issue was part of three separate referendums on Saturday, which were put forward by Tsai's rival camps.
