Mainland spokesperson rebuts DPP's slander on HK's LegCo election
A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Tuesday rebutted the slander by Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authority concerning the election for the seventh-term Legislative Council (LegCo) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
Calling the election a successful practice of the improvement to the HKSAR electoral system, Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said the new electoral system is broadly representative and politically inclusive.
It ensures balanced participation and guarantees fair competition, Ma said.
The just-concluded election in Hong Kong is not the same like those manipulated by the DPP authority, which is aimed at safeguarding the interests of external forces, Ma said.
Hong Kong's LegCo election fully embodies the principle of "patriots governing Hong Kong" and fully displays the strong vitality of the "One Country, Two Systems," the spokesperson said.
