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.

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
