致澳門立法會選管會主席唐曉峰:

我們是一群澳門普通市民,就2021年7月9日選管會取消3組2021年立法會選舉組別的參選資格提出抗議。

自回歸以來,五屆立法會選舉均未曾如此大規模且不合理地取消候選人的參選資格。澳門基本法第26條訂明,澳門特別行政區永久性居民「依法」享有選舉及被選舉權,而未經法律程序便褫奪某些人的被選舉權,實在荒謬。

面對大眾的一片嘩言,選委員才於7月12日公開交代理由,提出「擁護澳門《基本法》和效忠特區」的七個標準,認為只有「愛國者」才能參選。

然而,澳門的民主派及非建制議員一直盡心服務澳門市民,監督政府施政及政策發展,在維護「一國兩制」下為澳門及國家的發展努力,難道這還不是「愛國者」嗎?

另外,選管會在記者會上所交待的七大準則,除了定義相當模糊外,亦未能提出客觀理據,加上司警調查提供的所謂證據,盡是一堆主觀的字句及角度,網上拿下來的照片如笑話,完全沒有法律根據,指控非常荒謬,根本不足以證明3組候選人「不擁護澳門《基本法》和效忠特區」。身為選管會成員,理應對選舉事務的處理公平公開公正,並且維護「一國兩制」及基本法訂明給予澳門市民的權利。

因此,我們身為澳門特別行政區合法選民,按照基本法指明的選舉權利,嚴重向選管會的決定提出抗議及反對,[要求選管會徹回有關其參選資格的決定]。

澳門市民上

To the Chairman of the Legislative Assembly Electoral Affairs Committee, Mr Tong Hio Fong:

We are citizens of Macau. We are petitioning here for the decision which the Legislative Assembly Electoral Affairs Commission (CAEAL) disqualified all candidates from three pro-democracy camps for this year’s Legislative Assembly election on 9th July, due to “evidence” proving that they don't support Macau’s Basic Law and disloyal to the Macau SAR region.

Since the Macau handover, such large-scale and unjustified disqualification of candidates had never happened in the past five Legislative Assembly elections. Article 26 of Macau Basic Law: "Permanent residents of the Macao Special Administrative Region shall have the right to vote and the right to stand for election in accordance with the law." It is unjustified to deprive a certain group of people’s right to be elected without legal procedures.

On July 12nd, CAEAL suddenly set out seven criteria to support their decision, the criteria were set up in line with the principle that upholding the Macao Basic Law requires supporting the nation’s Constitution, suggesting that only "patriots" can run for the election.

Pro-democracy camps have always been the only and few critical voices in the legislative assembly of Macau. They speak for the weak and voiceless, improve people’s livelihood and fight for the rights that Macau citizens deserve within the Policy of One country two systems, Aren’t they the real patriots who love and support their country?

In addition, the seven criteria presented by the CAEAL at the press conference were rather vague in their definitions. They also failed to provide objective grounds. The so-called evidence provided by the police investigation were subjective and lack of legal basis, the allegations were not clear and failed to prove that the three Pro-democracy camps in violation of the duty to be faithful to Macau and Macau’s Basic Law. We strongly request that the CAEAL act based on the principle of fairness and equality for conducting election-related activities and uphold the rights granted to Macau based on "one country, two systems" and the Basic Law.

Therefore, we the legal voters of the Macao Special Administrative Region are granted the right to vote and the right to stand for election in accordance with the law. We are strongly requesting the CAEAL to retract the decision of disqualified all candidates from three Pro-democracy camps ASAP.

Macau citizens.
