China Times: Looking forward to a new NCC

The Legislative Yuan approved Tuesday the nominations of four members of the National Communications Commission (NCC) . With more than half of its seven commissioners replaced this time, the NCC is in effect entering a new stage.
Looking back over the past two years, we have seen a spate of complaints filed by the private sector against the NCC. This shows that the NCC was creating disputes more than it was resolving problems, and its performance failed to win the trust and respect of most communications business operators.
The other controversy surrounding the NCC was the alleged existence of "factions" within the organization, which allowed a small number of members to control the NCC's policy.
These controversies must not be repeated. With reports of "internal maneuvering" emerging ahead of the Aug. 1 election for the NCC chairmanship and vice chairmanship, we urge all new NCC members to display their moral courage and not allow selfish members to tarnish the image and reputation of the entire NCC.
We expect the appointment of the new members will bring Taiwan a brand new NCC -- one that will no longer create tumult and disputes but will lead Taiwan toward the age of digital convergence. (June 9, 2010) (By Y.F. Low)
