Unity urged for new HK deputies

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

Eleven peo­ple were elected for the first time to rep­re­sent the Hong Kong Spe­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­gion in the 13th Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress. The elec­tion hap­pens twice per decade. New faces in­clude Ray­mond Tam Chiyuen, for­mer sec­re­tary for con­sti­tu­tional and main­land af­fairs, and singer-turned-politi­cian Cally Kwong Mei-wan. Also among the 11 newly elected deputies are Tam Yiu-Chung, a mem­ber of the Na­tional Com­mit­tee of the Chi­nese Peo­ple’s Po­lit­i­cal Con­sul­ta­tive Con­fer­ence, and Mag­gie Chan Man-Ki, found­ing pres­i­dent of the Small and Medium Law Firms As­so­ci­a­tion of Hong Kong. Hong Kong’s newly elected deputies to the na­tional leg­is­la­ture should stay united and serve as role mod­els in push­ing for­ward co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Hong Kong and the main­land, says Wang Chen, vice-chair­man and sec­re­tary­gen­eral of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the NPC.
