The Chief Executive, Mr Chui Sai On, today said utmost efforts should be made to ensure tomorrow’s (Sunday’s) election was carried out in a smooth and orderly manner.
Mr Chui gave the directive to members of the Electoral Affairs Commission for the ChiefExecutive Election during his visit to inspect preparations at the polling station venue.
