CE backs BL annex amendments

I and the governing team of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government strongly support the amended Annex I to the Basic Law on Method for the Selection of the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong SAR and Annex II to the Basic Law on Method for the Formation of the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong SAR & its Voting Procedures approved by the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. The amendments improve the electoral system of the Hong Kong SAR, thereby establishing a political structure that upholds the “one country, two systems” principle, reflects the actual situation of Hong Kong and ensures patriots administering Hong Kong.   I and the Hong Kong SAR Government will spare no effort in taking forward the necessary amendments to the local electoral legislation in accordance with the amended Annex I and Annex II. We will extensively explain the matters to the public such that more and more people will recognise the necessity and urgency of such improvements to the electoral system and render their support. After the passage of the local electoral legislation by LegCo, the Hong Kong SAR Government will conduct and regulate election-related activities in accordance with the law in an orderly and efficient manner so as to implement the new electoral system.   I will continue to lead my governing team to dutifully administer Hong Kong according to the rule of law, safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, and maintain the overall stability of Hong Kong. I firmly believe that by improving the electoral system and implementing patriots administering Hong Kong, the excessive politicisation in society and the internal rift that has torn Hong Kong apart can be effectively mitigated, thereby enhancing the governance capability of the Hong Kong SAR. The Hong Kong SAR will then be able to leverage our unique advantages and the staunch support of the central authorities to develop the economy and improve the livelihood of our citizens. The steadfast and successful implementation of “one country, two systems”, as well as the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong, will be assured.   Chief Executive Carrie Lam issued this statement on March 30 in response to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress’ approval of the amended Annex I to the Basic Law on Method for the Selection of the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong SAR and Annex II to the Basic Law on Method for the Formation of the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong SAR & its Voting Procedures.
