CE-elect welcomes LegCo's passage of reorganisation proposal
     The Chief Executive-elect, Mr John Lee, welcomed the passage of the resolution on the proposed reorganisation of the government structure for the sixth-term Government by the Legislative Council (LegCo) today (June 15).

     Mr Lee said, "I am grateful to LegCo for its careful scrutiny and passage of relevant legislative and funding proposals for the proposed reorganisation of the government structure, so that when the sixth-term Government takes office on July 1, it can operate under the new structure with three secretaries of departments and 15 policy bureaux. The addition of deputy secretaries of departments will also help strengthen co-ordination and implementation of government policies, facilitating effective governance of the Government.

     The passage of the proposal displays a positive interaction between the executive and the legislature, under which the LegCo not only monitors the work of the Government, but also supports the Government in enhancing governance efficiency."

     Mr Lee also expressed his gratitude to colleagues of the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau and the Policy Innovation and Co-ordination Office, who closely co-operated with the Office of the Chief Executive-elect in attending relevant subcommittee meetings to explain the proposal and address legislators' questions, contributing to LegCo's passage of the resolution.
