The Electoral Affairs Commission for the Legislative Assembly Election holds a meeting to discuss issues relating to a by-election.

The Electoral Affairs Commission for the Legislative Assembly Election has approved a sectoral candidate list in relation to a pending by-election for a Legislative Assembly seat.

The list was submitted by “União dos Interesses Empresariais de Macau” registered under the industrial, commercial and financial sector as defined under the indirect-election portion of Macao’s electoral system.

The Chairman of the Commission, Mr Tong Hio Fong, gave the information to reporters on Thursday (26 September) after a meeting to discuss topics related to the by-election, including eligibility of the people included on the submitted list. The Commission had also received a copy of the election programme of the entity submitting the candidate list, Mr Tong said.

The by-election is to take place on 24 November. According to the timetable for administration of the election process, the Commission would issue on 3 October a list of accepted candidates, provided no appeal had been filed by that date.

Mr Tong said there was an aggregate 107 legal-person voters registered under the industrial, commercial and financial sector and each of the 107 legal-person voters had the right to submit a list with a maximum 22 individuals to vote on their behalf.

As of Thursday, only 26 legal-person voters had submitted their respective lists to the Commission. Mr Tong issued a remainder that 10 October was the deadline for relevant legal-person voters to submit their respective lists.
