Street booths promote DC reform

May 5, 2023

Multiple organisations have set up street booths in different areas across the city to promote the Government's proposals on improving governance at the district level and collect signatures from the public. 


Chief Executive John Lee visited one of the street booths in Wan Chai this morning to show his support. He said the proposals enable the Government to plan and promote district services more effectively, which is beneficial to society.


While visiting a street booth in Sheung Wan, Financial Secretary Paul Chan noted that the proposals allow the district governance structure to return to the principles stipulated in the Basic Law.


At a street booth in Tsuen Wan, Deputy Chief Secretary Cheuk Wing-hing and Secretary for Home & Youth Affairs Alice Mak appealed to the public to fully support the new proposals.


Deputy Financial Secretary Michael Wong was at a street booth in Causeway Bay with Secretary for Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang. Mr Wong said the new proposals are worthy of support because they take into account different aspects such as safeguarding national security or fully implementing "patriots administering Hong Kong".


Explaining the content of the proposals at a street booth in Wah Fu Estate, Deputy Secretary for Justice Cheung Kwok-kwan said the residents are looking forward to the return of rationality in the new term of the District Councils, which would reflect their opinions on district management.


Details of the proposals have been uploaded to the Home Affairs Department’s website. Members of the public can submit their views by May 16.
