CP Submission on methods for selecting the CE in 2017 and for forming the LegCo in 2016
The Government Consultation Document on the Methods for Selecting the Chief Executive in 2017 and for Forming the Legislative Council in 2016, published on December 2013, fails to state the fundamental legal basis for universal suffrage and omits key information provided in previous consultation documents on constitutional reform.
The 2007 Green Paper had a section “Concepts and Principles of Universal Suffrage” citing Articles 25 and 39 of the Basic Law as well as UN Human Rights Committee. It acknowledged that the concept of “universal suffrage”, as generally understood internationally, should include the principles of “universal” and “equal” suffrage.
