Basic Law protects rights: CS

April 04, 2014

The Basic Law provides robust protection of Hong Kong’s political and economic systems, as well as people’s basic rights.


Chief Secretary Carrie Lam made the statement today at the Eastern District Bus Parade starting ceremony. Twenty-one officials including Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen and Secretary for Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Raymond Tam also attended the ceremony.

She said Basic Law Article 45 states the ultimate aim of electing the Chief Executive by universal suffrage, and it stipulates the election procedure.


Mrs Lam said she and her team will encourage more people to express their views and forge consensus in the final stage of the constitutional reform consultation.


Mrs Lam and the officials later took part in the bus parade to Shau Kei Wan and Tin Hau to promote the Basic Law.
