Counting process review needed

Electoral Affairs Commission Chairman Barnabas Fung today said the polling process of the 2021 Election Committee Subsector Ordinary Elections went smoothly but a thorough review regarding the counting process should be done.   The counting of votes was completed at 6.29am.   Speaking to the media this morning, Mr Fung said about 4,380 voters have casted their votes, with a cumulative turnout rate of nearly 90%.   He said all election arrangements have reflected the principles of openness, fairness and honesty. However, the processes of ballot box delivery and counting were not satisfactory and the time taken was beyond reasonable expectation.   He noted that upon initial analysis, the counting staff lacked flexibility and they could not respond promptly and seek assistance when facing problems.   “There is absolutely no problem with any of the electronic devices causing unreasonable delay in the counting of votes today.   “The problem mainly lies with the hand fill-in ballot paper account. There are some minor discrepancies. And we are looking into it as to whether counting could still be conducted side-by-side (with) the reconciliation of the ballot paper account.”   The commission will review aspects for improvement and submit a report to the Chief Executive as prescribed by the law.   The commission is very thankful to the government departments involved, especially the Crisis Management Committee members which includes the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau, Police, the Home Affairs Department, the Information Services Department and the Department of Justice.   Mr Fung also thanked the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, members of the Electronic Poll Register (EPR) System Technical Advisory Committee, the Food & Health Bureau, as well as the Centre for Health Protection for their valuable advice about the EPR System and infection control measures.   The interim register of members of the new term Election Committee will be published on September 27, while the final register will take effect on October 22 in accordance with the law.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
