Carrie Lam: decision on qualification of HKSAR LegCo members sets things right

Added On November 14, 2020

Lam said the HKSAR government announced the disqualification of four LegCo members following the decision adopted by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress. She said the decision has set clear rules for the legal liability of LegCo members who violate the oath after being sworn in, and left no room for muddling through. She pointed out that as for NPC Standing Committee's decision, certain local politicians have resorted to the same trick again. They wantonly smeared it under the guise of democracy, human rights and freedom. Meanwhile, foreign governments and political organizations took the opportunity to confound right and wrong and attack the country. She said she believed that quite a few Hong Kong people have come to see the facts clearly and should not allow anyone to undermine "one country, two systems" and endanger national security. Hong Kong deputies to the National People's Congress and experts also expressed their firm support for the decision of China's top legislature.
