Just 17 villages have contested Rural Representative elections

rural station

Just 17 of the 113 designated villages in the Sai Kung and Sai Kung North Rural Committee areas have contested elections for the Rural Representative, to be held on 6 and 13 January 2019 respectively.

BUZZ has contacted Sai Kung and Tai Po District Offices to obtain the contact details of the candidates, but of the 35 nominated only two have agreed to allow their details to be released to the media.

BUZZ had wanted to send all candidates a simple questionnaire asking for their reasons for standing, and what they wish to see done for their villages. As we cannot do that, we will just publish the list of candidates for each contested village. If any of these wish to contact us we will endeavour to let voters know your thoughts – but, to be neutral we will try and allow any opponents to also comment at the same time.
