全球聯署【抗議政治篩選 還我選舉權利】

今日(10月12日)選舉主任宣佈決定劉小麗的選舉提名無效,亦即終身剝奪其參選權。我們強烈要求香港政府撤回DQ,還香港人應有的選舉權利!

特區政府此舉不單明顯破壞《基本法》賦予香港人的選舉及被選舉權,更顯示特區政府已經將DQ化為常態,在原來已經不民主的立法會選舉制度當中,僭建篩選機制,意圖以民意包裝專制,進一步削弱制衡力量。

而DQ的依據,僅是中共及特區政府不斷改劃的紅線、一再擴大的言論禁區。這正是向全世界發出「一國兩制蕩然無存,香港全面大陸化」的訊息,進一步破壞香港的國際形象,及減低世界對本港法治的信心。今天有份作出DQ決定的官員,將要承擔這份歷史責任!

我們要求特區政府,馬上撤回DQ劉小麗的決定,並立即停止任何形式的政治篩選!

No political screening,
Defend our rights of election

We denounced strongly that Mr. Franco KWOK, the Returning Officer, had just disqualified Ms Lau Siu Lai from the by-election of Kowloon West constituency today.

The Basic Law stipulates that “permanent residents of the Hong Kong shall have the right to vote and the right to stand for election in accordance with law". The disqualification, having said that, infringed the principles of Basic Law severely. In addition, it showed that the government has added screening process to every single elections. It is undemocratic and aims at prohibiting those the government dislikes from being elected.

On the other hand, the reasons of disqualification is unconvincing and unacceptable. The red line drawn by the authoritarian government changes from time to time in order to suppress the freedom of speech. It is clear that the one-country-two-system and the rule of law in Hong Kong have been seriously jeopardised. This will also undermine the international image and reputation of Hong Kong.

We, therefore, urge the government to withdraw the decision of disqualification immediately and cease all political screenings in the future.
