CE mourns Tong Wai-ki

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Hong Kong Taoist Association Chairman Tong Wai-ki.   She said Mr Tong was held in high regard, adding that he had been committed to promoting the Taoist religion and Chinese culture and actively participated in social services and charitable activities, making significant contributions over the years.   He was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star in 2013.   "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Tong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and the Taoist community," Mrs Lam noted.   Acting Secretary for Home Affairs Patrick Nip also expressed deep condolences over the passing of Mr Tong.   He commended Mr Tong for dedicating his life in promoting the Taoist religion and uniting the Taoist community while actively participating in charitable services and talent nurturing. http://dlvr.it/SHNxxJ

Disqualified voters to be notified

The Registration & Electoral Office (REO) today said that it will issue letters to electors that may be disqualified from voting in the upcoming Legislative Council General Election.   After the final register of electors has been published, if the REO receives updated membership and licensee information from the corresponding umbrella organisations and licensing authorities that there are changes to individual and body electors’ registration qualifications which render them no longer eligible to vote in the constituency concerned, the REO will write to such electors and remind them about the disqualification, the REO said in a statement today.   “As such, they should not vote in the relevant constituency at the LegCo General Election to be held on December 19, or else they may contravene the Elections (Corrupt & Illegal Conduct) Ordinance.”   Under the Legislative Council Ordinance, a registered functional constituency elector in the final register is disqualified from voting at a functional constituency election if this person is no longer eligible to be registered as an elector in that constituency, the REO explained.   Meanwhile, an Election Committee (EC) member is disqualified from voting at an election for the EC constituency if the member falls within any paragraph of section 26 of the Chief Executive Election Ordinance.   Such disqualification arises when, for instance, the member has ceased to have a substantial connection with the subsector concerned, has ceased to be registered or eligible to be registered as an elector for a geographical constituency, or has resigned as an EC member.   The REO noted that if the voters who have received the letters nonetheless consider themselves eligible for registration in the constituency, they could provide the REO with documentary proof and information according to the letters’ directions and deadline for follow-up.   If the voters are verified as being eligible to register in the relevant constituency, they may vote on the polling day on December 19, the REO added.
