Lai Man Lok, spokesperson of Scholarism, said civil nomination is a must to pave the way for universal and equal suffrage in Hong Kong.


Lai said that according to International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, universal and equal suffrage should include both right of being nominated and vote. However, Lai pointed out that the proposal suggested by the government did not include the right of being nominated among individuals.


Lai said that the proposal suggested by Scholarism did not mean to set a criteria on Chief Executive candidates, but he said that the candidates should gain the representation from Hong Kong citizens which can be reflected by the number of nomination gained by a candidate. "Everyone can interpret the word "widely represented"(which only appear in the Chinese version of the Basic Law" differently". Thus the Scholarism interpret it as gaining a certain number of nomination among citizens. Scholarism has drafted a charter and encouraged the public and different political parties to sign up which means they support the proposal of Scholarism.


Lai admitted that the Scholarism puts more effort on political reform of Hong Kong but not educational issues. Lai explained that since the Scholarism believes that every aspect in life including education policies is closely related to politics. Lai said that the Scholarism still concerned on educational issues, for example, whether Liberal Studies should be mandatory or not. However, since the Scholarism is not professional in this aspects and most of their resources are allocated in promoting political reform, thus the Scholarism put less effort on educational issue.


Scholarism, which organized by a group of secondary students, was founded in 2011 because of opposing Moral and National education proposal.--115047 2013年10月15日 (二) 18:05 (UTC)
