(You have used the term "mixed approach" twice in your first two paragraphs. You could substitute the second one with "the plan",or "the proposal". Your report in general is quite good save for a few obvious errors, like "strike for". It should be "strives for" instead.)

Hong Kong


Spokeperson of Alliance for True Democracy Cheng Yu Shek, Joseph, proposed a mixed approach for electing members of Legislative Council, which includes both single-seats from every district and proportional representatives from whole city. We call a legislative member without a specific district a member at large.


Cheng proposed a mixed approach for Legislative Council member election, with 40 single winners, which dividing the whole Hong Kong to 40 districts, with a person elected from each district; plus 50 seats of representatives elected generally from whole Hong Kong without partition.


Cheng commented single seats are favorable for big political parties, while proportional representatives, for small parties. He also believed such approach can maintain certain balance, as “both big and small political parties can get what they need.”


Cheng quoted recent president Xi Jinping’s sayings “authority is conferred by the people” and premier Wen Jiabao “let people live with greater dignity”, to stress that their ideas match with what his team strike for.


But Cheng doubted if the Central government actually obeys with what these authorities say. “Are they following such spirit now?” said Cheng.


Being asked whether the Hong Kong government is sincere to political reforms, Cheng commented, “The key is will the Central government allow true election? Do the candidates have real competition? Do the public have actual choice to elect the Chief Executive they want?”


He stated that all other questions are just technical problems. The main concern should keep focusing on the representativeness of the Chief Executive and the validity of election.


“One person one vote is not difficult, the key is about nomination. Are all candidates welcomed by the Central government?” he said. “If the person chosen from the Central government win the election, it is not a true election, and the Chief Executive is not representative to Hong Kong. But if the candidate they (Central government) have chosen lose, will they accept?”
