The Electoral Affairs Commission (EAC) Report on the 2012 Legislative Council Election was published today (December 4).
The report describes how the EAC conducted and supervised the election, and sets out the detailed arrangements and relevant follow-up actions to the election. The report also contains a review of relevant electoral arrangements in light of this year's experience, as well as improvement measures for future elections.
"We are grateful to the EAC for their efforts in reviewing the arrangements for the election and compiling the post-election report," a Government spokesman said.
"The Government will work closely with the EAC to follow up on the recommendations contained in the report, taking into consideration the views of the community," he said.
In accordance with the requirements of the Electoral Affairs Commission Ordinance (Cap 541), the EAC submitted the Report on the 2012 Legislative Council Election to the Chief Executive on November 22. In line with established practice, the Government agreed with the EAC's recommendation that the report should be made public.
