2017 CE must love Hong Kong :Hao

By Quinn Chan Ka Chun


26. Nov Obeying the Basic Law and Reporting responsibility to the Beijing Government is the basic requirement for a qualified Chief Executive in 2017 Election, Propaganda Chief of the Joint Liaison Office said yesterday.


Hao Tie-chuan, Director General of the Joint Liaison Office’s Propaganda Department, said that every head of state elected by the public are obliged to conform to his country’s constitution.


“Democracy and Rule of Law are entwined,” he said.


In response to Henry Tang’s remarks about the discrepancies between Beijing’s and basic law’s requirement about Chief Executive, Hao, a law expert, said basic law follows the common law system which does not spell out the exact terms to allow rooms for interpretation. He said that other articles in the basic law has already realized Beijing’s requirement.


“For example, the basic law states that the Chief must report to the SAR as well as Central Government,” Hao said, “How could a person who doesn’t love the country and Hong Kong do that?”


Henry Tang said on Monday that Basic Law did not stated explicitly that Chief Executive should be a person who loves Hong Kong and Beijing, but he believed voters would make a wise choice.


Li-fei, chairman of the Basic Law Committee (BLC), emphasized that Chief Executive in 2017 will be chosen by a nomination committee, which is made up like the election committee in 2012. Hao said that Li has explained thoroughly and clearly the specific legal requirements for 2017 Election.


“Li’s explanation is consistent with International understanding about General Election,” Hao said.


Hao said that Hong Kong should not duplicate any election modes from Western Countries, adding general election suggested by the United Nations has broad definitions.


“Every road leads to Rome,” he said, “There isn’t one particular election model which fits all.”


He said that the nomination committee, which will be based on the election committee, is widely representative enough to cover views from different social sectors.


Hao hopes that Hong Kong citizens could start discussion about the electoral methods.


On top of pro-democracy camps’ suggesting public nomination and party nomination, Hao said that the current model has protected the right of every qualified candidate to bid for committee members’ support.


He also said it is unfair to make sure members of pro-democratic camp could run for election as it overlooks the rights of nomination committee members to make their own choice.


Asked about his feeling towards June 4th Incident in 1989, Hao said that he has deep feelings during the “era of chaos”. He said that China is moving forward to democracy at a faster pace than imagined despite ample social problems.


“I truly look forward to witnessing general election in Hong Kong”, Hao said, “so that China’s democracy development could “ borrow a leaf” from Hong Kong’s success.”
