Chief Executive's Office responds to media enquiries

     In response to media enquiries on the remarks made by Mr Chris Patten, a spokesman for the Chief Executive's Office today (September 4) responded as follows:

     First, before Hong Kong's return to the motherland, all governors of Hong Kong were not elected by Hong Kong people.

     Second, the Sino-British Joint Declaration does not provide for universal suffrage at all.

     Third, Hong Kong's constitutional development under the Basic Law is an internal affair of our country and a matter for the Central Authorities and our people to decide.
