LMNP construction was undertaken by Taipower, which had little experience and oversaw the whole process using GE blueprints.
Moreover, many joints inside the LMNP reactor building were inadequately sealed with Teflon tape (AEC 2011).
It was found that Taipower had made 395 alterations to the LMNP design, including support for an emergency cooling system, without consulting the AEC or GE.
They blamed "GE's over-conservative design of LMNP" for all the problems.
As LMNP construction began, scandals came to light from time to time, but public reaction was rather mild.
In February 2013, the KMT's premier proposed holding a referendum to settle the future of the LMNP. The current Referendum Act requires a more than 50 percent voter turnout, plus an absolute favorable majority vote, in order for the referendum to be legally binding.
We carried out our study from July 1997 to December 1999 in Lake Mburo National Park (LMNP) and the adjacent Ankole Ranching Scheme (ARS), Nyabushozi County in southwestern Uganda.
In 1963 the implementation of 50 ranches adjacent to the Lake Mburo Controlled Hunting Area (the predecessor of the first LMNP) was planned and designed, the ' Ankole Ranching Scheme' , which totals an area of about 647 [km.sup.2] (Hoag & Clements 1993).
Mammalian predator species encountered during our study in LMNP were leopard Panthera pardus, spotted hyaena Crocuta crocuta, black-backed jackal Canis mesomelas schmidti and side-striped jackal Canis adustus lateralis.
Two road transects were situated inside LMNP, one on the northern ranches and one on the eastern ranches of the ARS (see Fig.
In our first analysis, we tested for general differences in group-sizes between the protected area (LMNP) and the adjacent ranchlands (ARS).
