【章程委員會又有新任務!】

——New Mission for the Committee of Rules and Mandate!

關於我在去年7月書面抗議立法會賀一誠主席不中立一事*,並依照《議程規則》第99條要求將抗議全文刊載立法會會刊,作為歷史紀錄。賀主席其後交給章程委員會研究抗議是否成立。

不過,章程委員會卻在去年11月7日,為此召開了一場「秘密會議」,涉嫌違反《議事規則》第42條,未有通知全體議員。直至今年1月31日才「東窗事發」**,有人推說是委員會高開賢主席的「政治決定」。

隨後,我對委員會有關做法,再次提出另一份書面抗議***。最近,賀主席覆函告知,將再次交給章程委員會研究新的抗議是否成立,未知「秘密會議」會否重演。

或者大爺們不懂我執著什麼,總覺得我在「玩嘢」。但我想說,我們是認真的,也請不要低估我們追求陽光議會的堅持。立法會不是「私人俱樂部」——關起門愛怎樣就怎樣,做嘢唔該乾淨一啲!

#議會無秘密

In July last year, I submitted a written protest against Legislative Assembly President Ho Iat Seng and requested the protest be published in the official AL Daily as a historical record. The President later relayed the matter to the Committee of Rules and Mandate.

However, the Committee held a secret meeting on 7 November 2018 which violates Article 42 of the Rules of Procedure since other deputies were not notified about the meeting. No one knows about it until 31 Jan. Some said it is a “political decision” made by the Committee Chairman Kou Hoi In.

Then, I submitted another written protest against the secretive meeting. I was recently notified by the President that the new protest will again be discussed by the Committee of Rules and Mandate. It is not sure whether it will be discussed in a secretive meeting again.

Maybe other “honourable gents” wouldn’t understand why I am so stubbon and may consider my action as harassment. But I want to say this: Please don’t underestimate our will to build a open legislature. The AL is not a private club where you could do anything without people knowing.
