The District Council elections will be held on the 10th of next month, and the government has repeatedly appealed to the public and nearly 18,21 civil servants to cast their ballots. Chief Executive John Lee also named the civil service team today (<>st) and pointed out that they have the responsibility to support the implementation of policies, and voting in elections is a civic responsibility, and civil servants are expected to set an example to fulfill their civic responsibilities and vote. He also said that under the new system, everyone should strive for ideas and achievements, and there should be healthy competition, not insults or shoddy personal attacks on political.
Speaking to reporters before the Executive Council this morning, Mr Lee took the initiative to mention that there are less than three weeks to go before the polling day of the election on December 12, and the Registration and Electoral Office (REO) has set up more than 10 direct election polling stations across Hong Kong for 600.433 million voters to cast their votes, and one local committee polling station in each of the 18 districts. In addition, two polling stations near the border were set up to remind them of the need for pre-registration for 1,2 places.
The new electoral system should be a benign competition, not an inferior insult
He stressed that under the new system, everyone should strive for ideas and achievements, and healthy competition, not abuse or shoddy personal political harassment.
Mr Lee added that RTHK and the Hong Kong Restart Alliance will jointly organise an election forum next week for candidates to introduce their political platforms, and the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau, the Information Services Department, and the Directors of Departments and Bureaux have all publicized and called for voting. He said that when he went to Shun Lee Estate last week, he also handed out leaflets to publicize the election. Buses and MTR are advertised and will continue to create an atmosphere.
