Alliance for True Democracy Responds to the Arrangement of Li Fei’s Visit
Alliance for True Democracy(ATD) note some media reports that the Deputy Secretary-General of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, Chairman of the Hong Kong Basic Law Committee, Li Fei will visit Hong Kong today (21 NOV 2013). Li is going to meet with some members of the Legislative Council.
ATD believes if the Central Government sincerely wishes to consult the members of LegCo on the issue of constitutional reform in Hong Kong, it should not be doing it on a selective basis. ATD is disappointed and express regrets over the current arrangement, and urges the Central Government to open the meeting to all members of LegCo, and including members of ATD.
ATD requests the 2017 Chief Executive Election method to guarantee a voter’s free and fair right to vote, to nominate, and to stand for election, without any “screening mechanism”. ATD will continue to fight for civil nomination for true universal suffrage and democracy in Hong Kong.
