     Incumbent Electoral Affairs Commission (EAC) member Mr Arthur Luk Yee-shun, SC, has tendered his resignation due to health reasons and retired from the EAC on April 3, 2023.

      "We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Mr Arthur Luk, SC, for his exemplary and dedicated service rendered to the EAC in the past eight years. Mr Luk was first appointed to the EAC in 2015 and was reappointed in 2019. During his tenure, Mr Luk assisted the EAC in conducting and supervising over 30 public elections with his vast experience in legal and electoral affairs, including the Chief Executive Election, the Election Committee Subsector Ordinary Elections, the Legislative Council General Election and the Legislative Council Election Committee Constituency By-election under the improved electoral system. The EAC has made significant achievements in ensuring that public elections in Hong Kong are open, fair and just," the Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Mr Erick Tsang Kwok-Wai, said.

     The Government is actively identifying the succeeding EAC member, and the announcement on the appointment will be made in due course according to established procedures.
     The EAC is a statutory body established under the Electoral Affairs Commission Ordinance (Cap. 541). Its responsibilities include making recommendations on constituency boundaries, the conduct and supervision of public elections, and making regulations, guidelines and arrangements for the registration of electors. The main objective of the EAC is to ensure that public elections are conducted openly, fairly and honestly.
