Government statement on oath-taking by members-elect of Legislative Council
     The Government today (October 13) issued the following statement on the oath-taking by members-elect of the Legislative Council (LegCo) yesterday:

     The oath-taking by members when assuming office upon the commencement of the new LegCo term is not just to ensure compliance with the law, but also a solemn promise they make as public officers to the entire community. In the process of oath-taking yesterday, some behaved in violation of the dignity expected of LegCo members, or even spoke or acted in an offensive manner that harmed the feelings of our compatriots. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government denounces such behaviour.
