SJ meets legal sector

Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng met legal sector members at two briefing sessions today to explain the improvement to Hong Kong's electoral system to enable the stakeholders to have a better understanding of the matter and thereby render their support.   The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress yesterday passed the amended Annex I and Annex II to the Basic Law for improving Hong Kong's electoral system.   The amendments safeguarded the constitutional order set out by the Constitution and the Basic Law while enhancing Hong Kong's governance efficacy. As such, the "one country, two systems" principle will continue to be implemented steadfastly.   In addition to giving its full support to the Government's work to improve the electoral system as early as possible, the Department of Justice will provide explanations to the legal community on the importance, necessity and legality of the improvement to gain their staunch support.
