The "Improvement of the Electoral System (Comprehensive Amendment) Bill 2021" was released today (13th). After a major reorganization of the Election Committee, which increased to 1,500, the relevant details were officially exposed.

Among them, two new sectors, namely "community associations" and "basic-level associations", have been added to the third sector of the Election Committee, each occupying 60 seats.

In the category of "community associations", as expected, the Guangdong Association of Societies, Fujian Association of Societies and other larger associations were all selected.

However, the name of the Chaozhou Association, whose chief honorary chairman is Changhe's senior adviser, fell behind.

As for the "grass-level societies", 60 seats are divided among three organizations, namely, the Hong Kong Island Federation of All walks of life, the Kowloon Federation of Societies, the New Territories Association of Societies, and the members of groups belonging to the above organizations.

The news is that the nameless on the list is part of Guangdong Province

The third sector of the Election Committee has added members from the 24 listed groups, including the Guangdong Association of Societies, the Fujian Association of Societies, the Guangxi Association of Societies, and the Hong Kong-Beijing Association for Exchange and Advancement.

However, the General Association of Chaozhou Societies, with Li Ka-shing as the chief honorary chairman, was not named on the list, and it was reported that many people in Hong Kong were dissatisfied with Chaozhou.

According to government sources, since Chaozhou is part of Guangdong Province, it is fair to not add the Chaozhou Association to the list.

However, the government’s explanation failed to relieve the people in the Chaozhou community. Some anonymous "influencers" criticized the government for ignoring the history and contributions of the General Association. This included full mobilization in the past two Legislative Council Kowloon West by-elections and a part to help establish the system. The party was upset and seized the seat.

The Chaozhou Association of Societies is one of the most influential associations in Hong Kong. The current chairman of the association is Chen Zhenbin, a representative of the National People's Congress of Hong Kong and the chairman of the Kowloon Federation of Societies. The chairman of the board of supervisors is Lin Jianyue, a member of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Lai Sun Group.

The leadership of the association is star-studded, and the chief chairpersons include Emperor Shoucheng, Chairman of Emperor Group, Dai Defeng, founder of Sizhou Group, "Toy King" Cai Zhiming, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Chinese Real Estate Liu Mingwei.

The inauguration ceremony of the tenth session of the board of directors was held in February. Chief Executive Carrie Lam and Deputy Director of the National Security Agency Li Jiangzhou served as officiating guests.

In recent years, the association has often held cultural inheritance activities to promote Chinese culture, and it has become increasingly active in the establishment.

27 Mainland Hong Kong groups each nominate 1 person for optional appointment

As for the newly added subsectors of "Hong Kong and Kowloon Area Committees, District Fight Crime Committees and District Fire Protection Committee members" and "New Territories Area Committees, District Fight Crime Committees and District Fire Protection Committee members" subsectors newly added in the fourth sector of the Election Committee , Occupying 76 seats and 80 seats respectively.

The sub-subsector "Representatives of Hong Kong People's Organizations in the Mainland" was allocated 27 seats. It was allocated from the Federation of Trade Unions Advisory Service Centers in many cities in Guangdong Province, the Hong Kong (Region) Chamber of Commerce in each city, the Hong Kong Professionals (Beijing) Association, and the Mainland of Hong Kong. The Economic and Trade Association, Shenzhen Qianhai Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce, etc. each nominate one person to serve.

In the fifth sector of the Election Committee, in addition to the 190 seats of the Hong Kong National People’s Congress and CPPCC members, representatives of "Hong Kong members of relevant national groups" also account for 110 seats, including the All-China Women’s Federation Hong Kong Special Representative and the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce Hong Kong Executive committee member, Hong Kong member of the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese, Hong Kong member of the All-China Youth Federation and Hong Kong council member of the Chinese Overseas Friendship Association.
