With nearly 100% of the vote counted, the so-called “child protection” referendum sponsored by the government was officially declared invalid. Data from the National Election Office shows that only around 44% valid votes were received for all four questions on the referendum.

Among the valid votes, around 95% of voters said “no” to three of the four questions, which were:

  • Do you support the promotion of gender reassignment treatments for minor children?
  • Do you support the display of media content showing gender reassignment to minors?
  • Do you support the unrestricted depiction of sexual-themed media content to minors that affect their development?

The final question, “Do you support holding sexual orientation sessions for minor children in public education institutions without parental consent?” was answered in the negative by just 92% of those who chose to answer it validly.

This result suggests that there were around 100,000 people who did not support the promotion of gender reassignment treatments for minor children, nor did they support the unrestricted depiction of sexual-themed media content to minors that affect their development, but did support holding sexual orientation sessions for minor children in public schools without parental consent.

Approximately 20% of the referedum ballots were declared invalid, while around 35% of voters didn’t even fill it out.
