BBC: Taiwan assembly passes changes

From BBC:

Taiwan’s National Assembly has approved important constitutional changes which supporters say will strengthen the island’s democracy.

Future amendments will have to be decided by referendums, which means the Assembly has effectively voted for its own abolition.

The move will alarm China, which fears referendums could be used to edge Taiwan towards formal independence.
