Electoral Affairs Commission announcement
The following is issued on behalf of the Electoral Affairs Commission:
     The Electoral Affairs Commission (EAC) was informed today (October 24) that the District Officer (Southern) has been on sick leave. As such, the District Officer (Yau Tsim Mong), Mrs Laura Aron, will take up the post of District Officer (Southern) concurrently until further notice. A gazette notice on September 6 announced that the post holder of District Officer (Southern) was appointed as the Returning Officer of Southern District. Therefore, starting from today, the Acting District Officer (Southern) will be the Returning Officer of the constituencies in Southern District. 

     Meanwhile, the EAC will hold a briefing tonight for candidates and their agents of the 2019 District Council Ordinary Election. Before the briefing session, the order of appearance of names of candidates on ballot papers will be determined by drawing of lots. As one nomination for the South Horizons West Constituency of Southern District is still being processed, the Returning Officer of the constituency will arrange the drawing of lots for that constituency later.
