The "Improvement of the Electoral System (Comprehensive Amendment) Bill 2021" passed the first and second readings in the Legislative Council yesterday (14). The geographical constituencies of the Legislative Council will be reduced from the current 35 seats to 20 seats, and the current five major districts will be broken down to 10 Districts, many districts that originally belonged to the same district board, such as Sha Tin and Wong Tai Sin, will be split into different geographical constituencies.

A reporter from "Hong Kong 01" visited City One in Shatin and interviewed residents, and found that most residents were unaware of the imminent demarcation.

Some district councillors said that they did not understand the logic of dividing the same community by demarcation.

City One Shatin and City One Constituency of Yu Tin Court belonged to the Yu Xin Constituency, which is mainly composed of Shin Ting Heen and Yu Chui Court. They were originally adjacent to the same community, but under the new Legislative Council zone, With a Cha Wai Kon Street as the boundary, City One to the north of the street is equally divided into the northeast of the New Territories with Tai Po and the North District, while Xin Ting Heen and Yu Chui Court to the south are divided into constituencies such as Ma On Shan and Sai Kung. Southeast New Territories.

Since then, the street will be divided into two different legislative council constituencies, which are very different from the community living habits in the past two districts and neighbourhoods.

▼The two districts of Yuxin and Diyi, Sha Tin, belong to the southeastern New Territories and the northeastern New Territories respectively, which are obviously different from the nearby communities▼

District Councillors: There is no reason to find two members of the Legislative Council to deal with the transportation links in the district

Yu Xin District Councillor Lo Yue Chau said that in the past, New Territories East was a complete concept. "Tai Po, Sai Kung, Sha Tin, and North District are a very complete concept of constituencies. You would not open a constituency in half and do it second. He said that he was shocked to hear the news at first, because the constituency was no longer complete, and he questioned the illogical division of the Yuxin and Yucheng constituencies in different legislative council constituencies.

Lao Yuezhou pointed out that the area is connected by traffic, and there is no reason to find different legislators to deal with.

He gave an example that the bus lines have always been of concern to residents, and buses departing from the bus terminus in the district will pass through constituencies in the northeastern New Territories and southeast New Territories. The new zoning will make the public not know which legislator to submit their opinions to in the future.

He also pointed out that some residents have reported to him that future legislators need to be closer to the districts because the number of seats for direct elections in the districts has decreased, so that members have to take care of livelihood matters.

Although the name of the Yu Xin constituency is composed of the most populous Yu Chui Court (left) and Shin Ting Heen (right), it actually includes Siu Lek Yuen, Hang Seng University, Tate’s Cairn Tunnel Entrance, Sha Tin Hospital, A Kung Kok and A large area of ​​mountainous area, part of the mountainous area as far as adjacent to the Tai Shui Hang electorate.

Residents: I don’t know which legislator to ask for help in the community in the future

Ms. Du, who lives in the district herself, believes that the new delimitation has a chance to cause confusion in voting. In the future, there will be a need to find members of the Legislative Council in the community, and there will also be a chance of not knowing who to help. It’s a good unity, you divide it into details, and it’s hard to carry through your ideas.”

Mr. Sin, who lives in Yu Chui Court, said that in daily life, he would travel to another area of ​​the newly demarcated area, but he could not affect the other area when he voted. "I don't understand why it is so divided."

He agrees that in the future, directly elected legislators of the districts should take more care of regional affairs, and believes that it would be better for legislators to concentrate on smaller places.

Mr. Xian said that in daily life, he would travel to another area of ​​the newly demarcated area, but he could not affect the other area when voting.
