【Good boy賀一誠攔截六四動議】

President Ho blocked a vote on the June 4th Incident

今年是六四事件30周年,吳國昌、區錦新和我早前聯合向立法會提出表達心意動議,結果準小圈子特首候選人賀一誠拒絕接納,理由是不符合議事規則、超出澳門自治範圍,我們當然不認同,也將會提出上訴。

事實上,六四動議內容涉及致意、慰唁、抗議、譴責等元素,都符合議事規則,再者,過去關於中國太空人升空、汶川大地震、劉曉波獲獎等動議,都能成功過關上枱表決,為何就是六四動議不能?

難道,澳門議會只能為國家歌功頌德,卻不得坦承國家歷史?

2019 is the 30th anniversary of the 1989 democratization movement and the June 4th Incident. Earlier, Ng Kuok Cheong António吳國昌, Au Kam San 區錦新 and I introduced a vote of expression in the Legislative Assembly.

Yet, President Ho Iat Seng, who is running for Chief Executive, rejected the vote, claiming that it violates the Rules of Procedures and is out of the boundary of automony of Macau. We vigorously disagree with his argument and will refute his decision in an appeal later on.

In fact, our vote of expression involves salutation, condolences, protest and censure and prefectly complies with the Rules of Procedures. Moreover, the Legislative Assembly has previously voted on the Shenzhou space program, the Sichuan earthquake and Mr Liu Xiaobo getting a Nobel Prize. They are all about China. Why can’t this vote on the June 4th Incident be accepted?

Does it mean that the Legislative Assembly of Macau can only eulogize the country but not expressing the truth on our history?
