Inclusiveness: The Open Budget Meetings process aims to be inclusive of all groups through inviting all local CSOs as well as representatives of other sectors to participate in the meeting. Other principles illustrated that could be improved: Openness: the legal framework section 4 of this case sets out with some clarity the process, time line, relevant bodies and committees, functions, rules for who attends, quorum.
This principle is weakened when practice does not necessarily follow the law. Sustainability: the fact that this practice is embedded in a decentralization process —thus, part of a wider development and governance strategy — gives it an element of sustainability.
Moreover, including detailed requirements in the law makes it harder to ignore the requirements in the second year. According to some of the studies cited, it appears that there is some substantive activity taking place in some UPs each year.
However, sustainability needs to be increased by adding a monitoring mechanism, and perhaps a reporting mechanism, with some consequences for non-compliance. Complementarity: the mechanism appropriately introduces an element of direct citizen input, but leaves the final decisions on budget preparation to the UPs.
It adds a means for citizen inputs and priorities while leaving the current constitutional arrangements in place. Country Context a. It has a Parliamentary System. Executive power is exercised by the government.

A total of 96,, people were in the voter list before it was updated. The EC initiated the process to create the updated voter list with photos in National ID cards were provided to more than 81 million citizens during that process.
Last year, the government decided to include citizens aged between 15 and 17 under the NID registration process. So far, over 6. However, on voting day, he votes for Candidate B instead i. His vote is not rational, but is bounded by his fears about national security.
Thus, we consider an inconsistency between voting intention and voting behavior to be an indication of bounded rationality; consistency between voting intention and voting behavior, on the other hand, would be evidence for comprehensive rationality e.
If not, these factors could be considered as evidence for the bounded rationality stance. We aim not only to provide insight into the comprehensive rationality versus bounded rationality debate, but also to evaluate the relevancy of the two types of human rationality in an actual election.
Previous research has found two primary factors in accounting for voting behavior in Taiwan: political party preference and ethnic identity see [ 11 ] for a review. The Taiwanese political parties can be classified into two categories.
The pan-Green parties, dominated by the Democratic Progressive Party DPP , are generally thought to be more supportive of Taiwanese independence [ 12 ]. However, social events and controversies in the recent years have led to rising public sentiment against the KMT-led government culminating in the Sunflower Movement, which saw mass protests in Taipei [ 13 — 14 ]. As a result, during the Taipei mayoral elections period, support for Wen-Je Ko, an independent candidate perceived to be representing pan-Green interests, grew rapidly; Ko proceeded to successfully challenge the KMT candidate, Sean Lien.
Because elections are often driven by political parties in Taiwan, we separately examined explicit and implicit political party preferences.
Explicit political party preferences for either the pan-Blue or pan-Green camps have been found to be strongly related to voting intention [ 15 ] and choices [ 16 ], consistent with the comprehensive rationality stance. Accordingly, our first hypothesis was that explicit political party preference should significantly predict voting intention and choices.
We focused on the more general explicit political party preferences, rather than evaluations of the specific candidates, partisanship, or party identification for three reasons. First, we did not target evaluations of the specific candidates to avoid conceptual conflation with voting intention.
Second, we did not target partisanship or party identification because a good proportion of Taiwanese voters e. Third, less educated Taiwanese people tend not to consider themselves partisans [ 21 ]. If the general explicit political party preferences of voters predict both their voting intention and choices, these results support the comprehensive rationality stance.
In addition to explicit political party preference, we examined implicit political party preference. The impact of implicit political party preference on voting intention and choices is more difficult to predict. Galdi and colleagues [ 22 ] examined voting intention during an election to determine whether a U.
However, the implicit attitudes regarding the base expansion enlargement best predicted the voting intentions of respondents who stated that they were undecided on the issue.
Specifically, the more respondents favored their preferred political party, explicitly or implicitly, the more likely they intended to vote for the candidate belonging to that party. The researchers also found that when the explicit and implicit political party preferences of the respondents were inconsistent with each other, respondents took more time to make a decision. Thus, based on the available literature, it is difficult to determine the precise role of implicit political party preference and the degree of rationality involved in voting intention and choices.
Therefore, we explore the relationship of implicit political party preference with both voting intention and choices. If implicit political party preference can predict both voting intention and voting choices, this evidence would lend support to the comprehensive rationality stance; if implicit political party preference predicted voting choices but not voting intention, then the evidence would provide support to the bounded rationality stance.
In addition to political party preferences, the shift in public opinion before and during the election campaign period in Taipei meant that other factors were also likely to have a sizable impact on voting intention and choices. Thus, we examined two other factors: ethnic identity and the perceived voting intention of significant others. Ethnic identity i. Because cross-strait issues should be less prominent in the Taipei mayoral election compared to a nation-wide presidential election , we expect that if ethnic identity should have an effect, its impact would be in line with the bounded rationality stance.
That is, although individuals may not deliberately consider their ethnic identity when voting, they may be more likely to vote for the candidate Ko the DPP-leaning candidate if they identify more strongly as Taiwanese.
The fourth and final factor we examined is the impact of people who are significant to an individual i. To summarize, we examined four predictors that are likely to be key in predicting voting intention and voting choices, focusing on the Taipei mayoral elections: a explicit political party preference, b implicit political party preference, c ethnic identity, and d the perceived voting intention of significant others.
