【新唐人2013年12月30日讯】日前,大陆湖南曝光了一起特大贿选丑闻案,近600名人大代表涉及参与贿选,涉案金额超过一亿元人民币。涉案范围之广、人数之多、金额之大、性质之恶劣,引发了社会舆论强烈谴责。

据中共官方媒体报导,12月27号到28号,湖南省人大常务会宣布,在衡阳市十四届人大一次会议期间,以贿赂手段当选的56名省人大代表当选无效。同时,衡阳市人大常委会也召开会议决定,接受512名收受钱物的衡阳市人大代表辞职。此外,湖南省政协副主席童名谦因失职渎职,对贿选案负有直接领导责任,被免职和接受调查。

官方通报说,在差额选举湖南省人大代表过程中,发生了严重的以贿赂手段破坏选举的违纪违法案件——56名当选的省人大代表存在送钱拉票行为,有518名衡阳市人大代表和68名大会工作人员收受钱物,涉案金额高达 1亿1000多万元人民币。

据了解,这56名通过行贿当选的省人大代表,有20人来自人大、政府机关、行政机构及国家企事业单位,企业界则有32人涉及。

“中国国家行政学院”教授汪玉凯在接受媒体采访时表示,衡阳市的人大贿选案不是个别现象,而是具有一定代表性,反映出腐败已经渗透到各个角落去。

北京市律师协会宪法人权委员会委员杨学林:“我们查出来的,或者没有查出来的这些贿选应该是比较多的,当然这肯定是一个弊端了。根本上铲除是不可能的,因为它有一个大的环境,各方面的土壤在那里摆着。”

湖北前民选人大代表,民间选举专家姚立法也指出,在选举人大代表过程中,贿选现象极为普遍,湖南的贿选,只是冰山一角。

湖北前民选人大代表,民间选举专家姚立法:“我也竞选过省人大代表,我也选过省人大代表,这个内幕我是知道一二的,从控制提名啊到投票啊等等。还有贿选的问题,当然我没有去贿选,但是我也被别人来向我贿选。贿选的问题,特别是近届选举产生的代表的贿选,实际上直接选举也好,它这个贿选问题,在中国是一个普遍存在的问题。”

姚立法认为,贿选现象如此严重,中共当局不可能不知道,但这么多年却极少见到这类案件被查处。而这次湖南的贿选丑闻,如果不是因为有参选的人大代表公开举报,产生了社会影响和舆论质疑,当局恐怕还会将选举黑幕永远遮盖下去。

据《新京报》报导,今年年初,在湖南省邵阳市举行的省人大代表选举中,民营企业家黄玉彪落选,随后他通过网路以自身为例,举报选举中的“贿选”现象,引发了社会强烈关注。

据黄玉彪讲述,他在参选前,被当地领导暗示需要贿选,既气愤又无奈,在送了32万红包给300多名有投票权的邵阳市人大代表后,他突然对贿选产生了厌倦,不再继续贿赂,结果最终差20票落选。出于对贿选这一潜规则的不满,黄玉彪在多家网站发帖实名举报,揭发了邵阳贿选黑幕。在媒体和舆论压力下,湖南省相关部门不得不展开调查,这才有了后面衡阳市贿选丑闻的曝光。

姚立法则曝出,人大代表与其说是选举出来的,不如说是被内定或买来的更为确切。他说,当选的人大代表,真实身份是当地黑恶势力分子的情况比比皆是。

姚立法:“现在实际上普遍存在的,是选票不值钱。老百姓就是说选举是一个过程、是一个形式,选举人是一个木偶,是为他人做嫁衣裳,是为他人背书,而不是个人意志的实现。你必须要按照他人意志去投票,而且你还不能吭声。”

网民讽刺,难怪人大代表们时常在人代会上语出雷人,在“权钱交易”下的产物,怎能指望人大代表们反映人民的利益?

Nearly 600 Hunan Lawmakers Disqualified

Recently, serious election fraud in Hunan Province
was exposed involving nearly 600 candidates who were
accused of taking more than 100 million yuan
(US$16.5 million) in bribes during the election.
“The fraud, involving such a huge number of lawmakers
and a large amount of money is serious in nature, has a vile
impact, and has triggered strong public condemnation,”
a statement said.

Hunan Standing Committee of the National People’s
Congress (NPC) made an announcement on Dec. 27 and 28,
China’s state-owned media reported.
It said that during the meeting of Hengyang’s first session
of the 14th NPC, 56 candidates who won elections
via bribery were disqualified.
Meanwhile, Hengyang’s 512 NPC representatives
who accepted bribes were removed.
In addition, Tong Mingqian, Deputy Chairman of Hunan
Provincial Political Consultative Conference, who was
directly responsible for the election was dismissed
and placed under investigation for alleged breach of duty.

An official statement given during the election said
56 lawmakers elected to the provincial legislature offered
bribes to 518 Hengyang NPC representatives
and 68 other staff members.
The total amount of bribes offered amounted
to 110 million yuan (US$18 million).

Sources say that 20 out of 56 lawmakers
who were involved in fraud came from governmental organs
and state-owned enterprises.
32 came from the business world.

Wang Yukai, Professor at China National School
of Administration told media that the Hengyang fraud case
is not an isolated phenomenon.
It reflects that the corruption has penetrated
into every corner of China.

Yang Xuesen, member of Beijing lawyers society:
“There may be more such cases
that haven’t been checked out.
There is certainly a loophole.
It is impossible to prevent it from the root.
The environment facilitates its presence, it is a ripe
breeding grounds for the loophole.”

Yao Lifan, former Hubei NPC representative says
that during the election, it is a common practice
to offer bribes.
The Hunan case is just the tip of the iceberg.

Yao Lifa: “I have been participating in elections,
and have been elected.
From the control of the nominees to the vote,
I have behind-the-scenes insight.
Regarding bribery, I certainly didn’t offer bribes,
but other people have offered me bribes.
Regarding the fraud in the recent election,
it is common practice in China.”

Yao says it is impossible that the regime isn’t aware
of the serious election fraud.
Such cases have been investigated for many years.

If the media didn’t report on the Hunan fraud and the society
didn’t question it, the regime would continue to cover it up.

The Beijing News reported that in early 2013, private
entrepreneur Huang Yubiao lost in the Shaoyang City,
Hunan election.
Later, he posted about election fraud online taking himself
as an example.
It drew quite a bit of public attention.

Huang Yubiao says that before he participated in the election,
local leaders implied that he offer them money.
He was angry and felt hopeless.

After he sent 320,000 yuan ($53,000) to 300 Shaoyang NPC
representatives, he suddenly grew tired of bribery,
and no longer offered bribes.
In the end, he lost 20 votes and was defeated.

Huang wasn’t very happy with the rule of bribery,
thus he exposed Shaoyang’s election fraud online.
Under the pressure of media and public opinion,
Hunan regime has to carry out an investigation.
Later the fraud was exposed.

Yao Lifa revealed that the NPC representatives’ positions
were bought rather than won via the vote of the people.

He says that it is common practice that the elected
NPC representatives were local thugs.

Yao: “The current problem is not to actually use the ballot.

People say that the election is just a showcase, a formality.

The candidates are puppets serving for a specific group.
They cannot express their own opinion.

One must follow someone’s will to vote,
and one must keep silent.”

Netizens ridiculed the NPC representatives frequent
shocking speeches.
They wonder how people could expect the representatives
to speak out for them when they trade money for power.
