DC election poll cards mailed

The Registration & Electoral Office today said it has mailed poll cards for the District Council Ordinary Election to about 4.33 million registered electors to inform them of where they should cast their votes on December 10.   Electors who have not received their poll cards may log in to the Online Voter Information Enquiry System to check whether they are registered electors and their designated polling stations, the office said.   District Council geographical constituency (DCGC) electors will be allocated to ordinary polling stations in the vicinity of their registered addresses. Polling hours will be from 8.30am to 10.30pm.   District Committees constituency (DCC) electors will be assigned to the polling stations of the DCCs to which they belong. The polling hours will be from 8.30am to 2.30pm. They will also receive a reminder on the poll card envelope that the DCC and DCGC vote will take place at two different polling stations with different polling hours.  

Revamped Aberdeen Market opens

Secretary for Environment & Ecology Tse Chin-wan officiated at the opening ceremony of the overhauled Aberdeen Market today.   The market, under the Food & Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD), adopts a modern design and layout, including delineation of stalls according to trade types, stall enlargement, passageways widening and an increase in public spaces.   It is also equipped with baby care and breastfeeding rooms and a multipurpose space for holding market promotion events.   New facilities such as a recycling store, barrier-free facilities and a separate storage room for temporary storage of carcasses are available.   The market provides 142 stalls, the majority of which started business from April 26 and have been operating smoothly.   The market's new environment and facilities have been well-received by the public.   Mr Tse said at the opening ceremony that Aberdeen Market’s overhaul is a pioneering project of the Market Modernisation Programme (MMP).   The programme aims to enhance the business environment for tenants and the competitiveness of markets through improvement works, while at the same time providing patrons with a more pleasant shopping experience.   Apart from Aberdeen Market, the FEHD is pressing ahead with the other five overhaul or redevelopment projects announced under the MMP.   Among them, Lai Wan Market has been closed since February this year for an overhaul and is expected to reopen before the Lunar New Year in 2024 at the earliest.   The FEHD is also carrying out preparatory and consultation work for other proposed overhaul or redevelopment projects, which include Yeung Uk Road Market, Ngau Tau Kok Market, Kowloon City Market and North Kwai Chung Market.
