CS speaks to media after voting (with photos/video)

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mrs Carrie Lam, at a media session after casting her vote for the 2016 Legislative Council Election at the German Swiss International School Peak Campus this morning (September 4):

Chief Secretary for Administration: Let me say a few words in English. Hong Kong is a city of diversity. Over the years, many people of different background, ethnicity and language have made Hong Kong their home. Today is the Legislative Council Election. I urge all the roughly 3.78 million registered voters to come out to cast their vote. Please remember each one of you has two votes. One vote for geographical constituency, and one vote for the functional constituency. I can fully understand that over recent years you may be upset and disturbed by the increasing confrontation in the Legislative Council, and you may be disappointed by the fact that Hong Kong, the city we love, has not been making more progress that she deserves. But it is exactly for this reason that I urge you to vote because indifference will not lead us anywhere. Your vote is a vote of confidence in Hong Kong. Thank you very much.
