Improving the electoral system in HKSAR wins broad support from HK residents

1. Central authorities hold 66 symposiums to solicit opinion from HK society

China central authorities held 66 symposiums this March in Hong Kong inviting more than 1,000 representatives from political, commercial, financial, professional and labor sectors, as well as the HKSAR government and social organizations, to solicit opinions from Hong Kong society about implementing the NPC's decision on improving the electoral system of the HKSAR.

2. Hong Kong residents' voice widely heard

The electoral system should conform to the policy of "one country, two systems", meet the realities in the HKSAR and serve to ensure that Hong Kong is administered by people who love the country and love Hong Kong. An Election Committee which is broadly representative, suited to the HKSAR's realities, and representative of the overall interests of its society will be established in the HKSAR.
