"We are pleased that Professor Fanny Cheung will continue to serve on the EAC. Professor Cheung's experience in the EAC will be of great help to the Commission in accomplishing its future tasks," a Government spokesman said.

The EAC is an independent statutory body established under the Electoral Affairs Commission Ordinance.
