Three nominations received for Yuen Long District Council by-election
     One nomination for the Shap Pat Heung West Constituency and two nominations for the San Tin Constituency were received by the Returning Officer for the by-election of the Yuen Long District Council by the close of the nomination period today (June 10).

     Particulars of the nominees are available on the Electoral Affairs Commission website (www.eac.hk/en/distco/2019yld_candidates.htm).
     A full list of the validly nominated candidates will be published in the Gazette after the Returning Officer has validated and confirmed the eligibility for candidature of the nominees.

     If the number of validly nominated candidates for a constituency is more than one at the by-election, a poll will be held on July 14, 2019 (Sunday) for the by-election for that constituency.

     The Commission will hold a briefing for candidates and their agents at Yuen Long Town East Community Hall, 9 Long Yat Road, Yuen Long, New Territories, at 7pm on June 13, 2019 (Thursday).

     The Commission's Chairman, Mr Justice Barnabas Fung Wah, will chair the briefing and introduce the guidelines on election-related activities, electoral arrangements for the by-election and the important points to note in running election campaigns. A representative from the Independent Commission Against Corruption will explain the Elections (Corrupt and Illegal Conduct) Ordinance. The Returning Officer and representatives from the Registration and Electoral Office, Hongkong Post and the Department of Justice will also be present.
     Before the briefing, the Returning Officer or Assistant Returning Officer will determine the order of appearance of names of candidates on the ballot papers and the allocation of designated spots for the display of election advertisements by drawing of lots.
