Policy Address

8.         The system just described embodies the principles of "One Country, Two Systems", "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy.  This is a unique and unprecedented system.  There is neither overseas precedent nor "international standard" of the kind.  For Hong Kong to select its Chief Executive by universal suffrage, the Basic Law and the relevant Interpretation and Decisions of the NPCSC must be complied with.

9.         We fully recognise the aspirations of our young students for democracy and their concerns about political reforms.  University students are the future pillars of society and deserve our care.  Hence, there is all the more reason for us to commend them for their merits and correct their mistakes.  They should be guided towards a full understanding of the constitutional relationship between our country and Hong Kong so that the discussion on constitutional development would not be fruitless. 

10.       The 2014 February issue of "Undergrad", the official magazine of the Hong Kong University Students’ Union, featured a cover story entitled "Hong Kong people deciding their own fate".  In 2013, a book named "Hong Kong Nationalism" was published by "Undergrad".  It advocates that Hong Kong should find a way to self-reliance and self-determination.  "Undergrad" and other students, including student leaders of the occupy movement, have misstated some facts.  We must stay alert.  We also ask political figures with close ties to the leaders of the student movement to advise them against putting forward such fallacies.

11.       The rule of law is the foundation of Hong Kong.  The democratic development of Hong Kong must therefore be underpinned by the same.  As we pursue democracy, we should act in accordance with the law, or Hong Kong will degenerate into anarchy.

12.       Since taking office, the current-term Government has progressively fulfilled the pledges in my Manifesto on housing, poverty, elderly care and environmental protection.  The related initiatives have begun to deliver results.  By promoting economic development and taking forward the constitutional development in accordance with the law, we will have a greater capacity for implementing policies to improve people's livelihood.
