The next chief executive of Hong Kong will be elected on 25th, March this Sunday. Given that there is still no referendum in Hong Kong, we do not have any say in it. However, Lai Hing-ling, Peter, former Secretary for Security said the Hong Kong government should “make policy-making process more open to the public” in Shue Yan University on Tuesday, 20 March. (good opening and title)


Lai said (article) government only consulted the public in the policy-making process in the past, but he believed it was an outdated method. “In the 21st century, public engagement in policy-making is essential,” said Lai. “Not only non-democratic societies like Hong Kong need to do this,(need transition word-"but, even, for example") democratic societies in the U.S. and Europe also value public engagement in terms of policy-making, like having interest groups,” he added.


Lai knew it is not easy to engage the public in policy-making process, and there is no policy about this lately. He believed “politics should (be-erase) originate(d) from Hong Kongers, therefore the government needs to let citizens know they can participate in the policy-making process and thus, make sure policies can go smoothly down the road.” (careful with this sentence, politics or policies should originate from people?)

Dear Stephanie,

My mistake. I misunderstood/read your corrections, as I mistook the () for lack of change. Yes, indeed, I see you did correct your work. Ironically, in trying to help me see the changes you made more clearly, it actually made it more confusing, as I equate ()s for incomplete corrections.

Simply erase the ()s, and replace the old words with the new correction. I will just compare the two blocks of text. Although very kind of you, you do not need to bold the words or keep them in ()s. But, thank you for your concern and conscientious work.

Ms Umugwaneza


Thank you Ms Umugwaneza.
