Statement by ExCo Non-official Members on Decision on improving electoral system of HKSAR by NPC
The following is issued on behalf of the Executive Council Secretariat:
     The Non-official Members of the Executive Council (ExCo) today (March 12) issued the following statement:
     The ExCo Non-official Members strongly support and warmly welcome the passage of the Decision on improving the electoral system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) at the fourth session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC). Through the improvement of the electoral system, the Decision can get Hong Kong back on the right track of the principle of "One Country, Two Systems", and is therefore conducive to the long-term prosperity and stability of the city.
     The ExCo Non-official Members believe that plugging the loopholes institutionally will help Hong Kong deal with its internal rift effectively, thereby ensuring the full and faithful application of the "One Country, Two Systems" principle in Hong Kong. The ExCo Non-official Members will render their full support to and co-operate with the HKSAR Government in enacting the relevant local legislation to ensure that the NPC's Decision can be implemented as soon as possible.
