CE views polling, counting stations

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today inspected the main polling station and central counting station for the 2022 Chief Executive Election at the Convention & Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai to know more about the final stage of the preparatory work for the poll.   Accompanied by Secretary for Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang and Electoral Affairs Commission Chairman Barnabas Fung, Mrs Lam learnt about the set-up of the main polling station, epidemic prevention measures, security arrangements and counting procedures of the election during her visit.   She also gave encouragement to the electoral staff participating in rehearsal sessions there.   Mrs Lam said: “The 2022 Chief Executive Election was the third major election under the improved electoral system.   “It is vital that all electoral staff are well versed in their duties and procedures to ensure the smooth conduct of this election. I hope that every colleague will be fully committed to making this a historic election for Hong Kong.”   She added that the central government's improvement to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's electoral system has provided a robust safeguard for fully implementing the principle of "patriots administering Hong Kong".   Following the completion of the Election Committee Subsector Ordinary Elections and the Legislative Council General Election, the Government will, as in the past, spare no effort to ensure the Chief Executive Election will be conducted in a fair, open and honest manner efficiently.   Mrs Lam also appealed to Election Committee members to cast their votes tomorrow.
