To help candidates and election agents better understand the Elections (Corrupt and Illegal Conduct) Ordinance (ECICO), the ICAC has produced a "Clean District Council Election Information Booklet" (PDF file) (the "Booklet") for their reference. Through the arrangement of the Registration and Electoral Office, each candidate will receive a copy of the Booklet when submitting the nomination form.
The Booklet consists of the following four parts:
|(1)||Questions and Answers – spells out the spirit of the law and its application to election situations;|
|(2)||Gist of Past Election Cases – features the gist of some ECICO cases in past elections;|
|(3)||Dos and Don'ts Checklist – states what candidates and election helpers should take note of in the process of running an election; and|
|(4)||Channels for Reports and Enquiries – provides the channels for making reports and enquiries to the ICAC|
The "Reminder to Electors" (PDF file) leaflet contains major points-to-note of the ECICO to remind electors to abide by the rules and support clean elections. The leaflet will be sent to electors of the District Council Election together with the polling notice.
The ICAC has also produced a "Checklist" (PDF file) to remind candidates and election helpers on what they should take note of in the process of running in an election.
District Committees Constituencies have been established in the upcoming District Council Election and the ICAC has produced the "Reminder to Electors of the District Committees Constituencies" (PDF file) to remind electors on the requirement of relevant provisions.
The ICAC has also produced a "Reminder to Candidates on Election Return" (PDF file) to remind candidates on what they should take note of when completing the election return.
