HAB urges arts practitioners seeking candidature in 2019 HKADC Nomination Exercise to submit applications as soon as possible
     The candidate nomination period of the 2019 exercise for nomination of representatives of arts interests to the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) (the 2019 Nomination Exercise) will close at 5pm on September 13. The Home Affairs Bureau (HAB) today (September 10) urged arts practitioners who wish to seek candidature to submit their applications as soon as possible.
     Applicants seeking candidature should submit completed forms together with all required supporting documents in person or by their authorised persons to Tri-Leaves Promotion Limited - the Nomination Agent appointed by the HKADC - before the deadline. Applications submitted by post, fax or email will not be accepted.
     A prospective candidate is required to be a voter registered for the 2019 Nomination Exercise and for the particular arts interest in which he or she is standing as a candidate, and must be nominated by at least five proposers, or 1 per cent of the total number of registered voters in the same arts interest (whichever is higher). A proposer must be a registered voter of the same arts interest as the prospective candidate and may nominate only one candidate in this Nomination Exercise.
     The guidelines for nomination of candidates, the candidate application form and other information about the 2019 Nomination Exercise are available at the Nomination Exercise website: www.voteforhkadc2019.hk. Registered voters may call the Nomination Agent at 3956 1408 and make an appointment for viewing the registered voter lists at the agent's office.
     The HKADC is a statutory body set up to promote the development of arts in Hong Kong. The term of office of its current members, including representatives of 10 arts interests, will expire on December 31, 2019. The HKADC is conducting the Nomination Exercise to nominate representatives of arts interests for the Chief Executive's consideration for appointment as members of the HKADC for the next term.
