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.  

Subsidised flat ballots drawn

Ballots were drawn today for the Housing Authority’s Sale of Home Ownership Scheme Flats (HOS) and White Form Secondary Market Scheme (WSM) to determine the priority sequence of applications.


The authority’s Subsidised Housing Committee Chairman Cleresa Wong officiated at the ballot drawing ceremony.


The results are available on the HOS and WSM dedicated webpages.


About 172,000 applications for HOS flats and around 78,000 for WSM flats were received, the authority said.


This sale round includes 9,154 units of six new HOS developments, 60 rescinded flats at Kam Chun Court in Ma On Shan, Kai Cheung Court in Diamond Hill, Yu Nga Court in Tung Chung and Yu Tak Court in Sha Tin as well as about 400 recovered Tenants Purchase Scheme flats.


It is estimated that eligible applicants will receive notifications in batches for flat selection from the first quarter of next year.


For the WSM which provides 4,500 quotas, approval letters will also be issued to successful applicants in the same quarter for them to apply for a Certificate of Eligibility to Purchase within six weeks.


The certificate can be used by the applicant to purchase a flat within the 12-month validity period.
