Electoral system briefings held

Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui today held three briefing sessions for the sports and culture sectors to explain the improvements to Hong Kong's electoral system.   The sessions enabled the stakeholders to have a better understanding of the approval by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of amendments to Annexes I and II of the Basic Law and render their support.   Mr Tsui said the improvements to Hong Kong's electoral system can accord with the city's actual situation and better attend to the society's overall interests, which enhances the governance of Hong Kong.   As such, the "one country, two systems" principle will continue to be implemented steadfastly, maintaining Hong Kong's advantages, he added.   Mr Tsui will conduct more sessions to brief various sectors, listen to their opinions and call on the community for their full support on the relevant amendments.
