The nomination period for the 2021 Legislative Council (LegCo) General Election is from 30 October to 12 November. Members of the Election Committee (EC) may nominate candidates for the LegCo election by signing on the relevant forms in accordance with the law. The number of nomination forms that an EC member may sign to subscribe is set out in section 7 of the Legislative Council (Subscribers and Election Deposit for Nomination) Regulation (Cap. 542C). In brief, each EC member may sign to subscribe on up to fiveNote 1 nomination forms in different capacities. The detailed arrangements are tabulated below –
|Constituency||As a EC member||As a GC/FC elector/||Maximum number of forms that an EC member may subscribe in different capacities|
|Geographical Constituency (GC)||In any GC: 1||In his/her own GC: 1||2Note 2|
|Functional Constituency (FC)||In any FC: 1||In his/her own FC: 1 (Labour FC: 3)||2Note 3
(If the EC member is an elector in the Labour FC: 4)
|Election Committee Constituency||1||1|
Note 1: If the EC member is the authorized representative of a corporate elector of a functional constituency, the EC member may subscribe one additional nomination form for the corporate elector in the capacity as the authorized representative.
Note 2: Specifically, an EC Member can nominate one candidate as a GC elector in the GC that he/she belongs to, and nominate another candidate in the capacity as an EC member in either the GC that he/she belongs to or in any other GC. Meanwhile, an EC member can also choose to nominate the same candidate in the same nomination form in the GC that he/she belongs to, in both capacities as an EC member and as a GC elector.
Note 3: Specifically, an EC Member can nominate one candidate as an FC elector in the FC that he/she belongs to (if he/she is an elector in the Labour FC, he/she can nominate up to three persons), and nominate another candidate in the capacity as an EC member in either the FC that he/she belongs to or in any other FC. Meanwhile, an EC member can also choose to nominate the same candidate in the same nomination form in the FC that he/she belongs to, in both capacities as an EC member and as an FC elector.
Please note that according to the relevant legislation, if an EC member subscribes more nomination forms than the number of nomination forms which the EC member is entitled to in a particular capacity, generally the EC member's signature is inoperative on any nomination form so subscribed other than the first one delivered*. If the candidate concerned cannot make up the required number of subscriptions from the electors of the geographical/functional constituency electors or EC members before the close of the nomination period, the nomination of the candidate will be invalid.
*Unless the nomination of the candidate concerned is decided as invalid.
