We are Election
Committee members who were elected to strive for universal suffrage to be
implemented in Hong Kong by 2012. We are
saddened and angered that such an arrangement has been denied.
During the CE Election
in 2007 Mr. Donald Tsang promised that he would:
the question of universal suffrage once and for all during his 5 year term as
to the Hong Kong People an ultimate solution to the issue of universal
suffrage, and that this solution would include a roadmap and timetable.
it takes to finally resolve this issue for the Hong Kong
We all believe that Hong Kong needs to bring balance and fairness to its
political system. We need a system that can resolve conflicts systematically and
in a democratic and rational manner.
For the sake of Hong Kong and our future generations, we must not allow
this issue to linger on, and as Mr. Tsang once promised, we can and we must
deal with this issue once and for all.
The Chief Executive of
the Hong Kong SAR Government has a duty to fearlessly convey the wishes and
interests of the Hong Kong People to the Central People’s Government. We demand that Mr. Tsang fulfill his
election promise by giving the Hong Kong People a genuine roadmap leading us to
universal suffrage. We call on the people of Hong
Kong to launch a campaign for political accountability and convey
the above message clearly to Mr Tsang.
If the Chief Executive
evades his responsibility for constitutional development, he will face the
people with shame.
