HKPEOC’s response to the declaration by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

HKPEOC’s response to the declaration by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

The Hong Kong Government has severely condemned the “Hong Kong Parliament” (HKP) today. The government claims Elmer Yuen (Yuan Gong Yi), Leung Mau Victor Ho, and Baggio Leung Chung Hang formed a committee to establish a “Hong Kong Parliament” with overseas activists and are suspected of contravening the offence of subversion under Article 22 of the National Security Law.

The Hong Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee’s response is as follows:


We believe in popular sovereignty – the authority of a state and its government or law should be the expression of the general public’s will. All citizens have the right to contribute personally, or through their representatives, to its formation.

The Hong Kong Government’s declaration that three of the HKP’s electoral organizing committee members, who allegedly committed the offence as stated above, are now on a wanted list is unjustifiable. No Hongkongers will consent to this hilarious move of the Hong Kong Government. We organize the Hong Kong Parliament with genuine representativeness who can truly represent Hongkongers.

It is our honor that we are wanted by this unjust and illegitimate regime.

We shall never back down to dictatorship. To liberate Hong Kong, we will work in full gear to establish a Hong Kong Parliament that can truly reflect the will of the Hongkongers.

Issued at HKT 23:45 Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee

Statement of Elmer Yuen (Yuan Gong Yi)

On the Arrest Warrants Issued by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

On August 3, 2022, the Hong Kong Security Bureau, on behalf of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, issued warrants for the arrest of Mr. Victor Ho, Mr. Baggio Leung, and me. The government accused us of violating the “National Security Law” by engaging in “actions subverting state power”.

Our so-called “crime” is to establish a committee to prepare for an election of a new Hong Kong Parliament. Unlike the current system in Hong Kong, this election, which is scheduled for 2023, will be based on the principle of universal suffrage. We hope that an elected parliament will legitimately represent the voices and the interests of the Hong Kong people. Everything we have done so far falls squarely within the framework of modern democracy.

In 1960, the United Nations granted all peoples of colonies to gain their independence by referendum. The Chinese government, however, denied such referendum and took away the sovereignty of Hong Kong in 1997. Since then, Beijing has repeatedly violated its promise of “One Country, two systems,” unlawfully and violently depriving the people of Hong Kong freedoms, such as the freedom of speech, assembly, and association. It has turned Hong Kong from a civil society with an English legal system into a typical communist tyranny. It has destroyed economic prosperity and further limited political openness in Hong Kong. On June 30, 2020, the Chinese People’s Congress passed the Hong Kong National Security Law. Since then, Beijing has governed Hong Kong with political terror. Many critics of the Chinese Communist Party have been arrested and given long sentences in prison. All independent media organizations have been forced to close. Hong Kong has descended into darkness. Peoples of the world have lost faith in what was once the “Pearl of the Orient”.

A group of Hongkongers dedicated to freedom and democracy in Hong Kong determined to establish an institution, through universal suffrage, to give the people of Hong Kong a voice. I am part of the effort. In this new parliament, different voices can speak out. Such an institution is the foundation of any modern democratic society. The fact that the current Beijing-appointed government demands our arrest shows its lack of confidence in its own legitimacy. It relies completely on violence to suppress political challenge.

I will not back down. Our quest for freedom will continue. Tyranny will be defeated eventually.

God bless Hong Kong.

Statement of Leung Mau Victor Ho

On the Arrest Warrants Issued by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

Our goal is simple: through organizing a Hong Kong parliamentary election, we will restore the unalienable right of suffrage to the Hong Kong people.

The Hong Kong Legislative Council is totally controlled by the Chinese Communist Party at this point. The regime denied the right of the people to directly elect all members of the Council in a fair, just, and fear-free election. Such an election, based on the principle of one-person-one-vote, is the election standard of the international community.

On August 3, the Hong Kong government issued arrest warrants for three members of the Electoral Organizing Committee. I am one of the three. This shows how afraid the current Hong Kong government is of a true democratic election, and thus tries to use violence to suppress the right of suffrage of the Hong Kong people.

The road to the restoration of a prosperous and free Hong Kong must go through universal suffrage. Free election is the only means to reflect the true will of the people.

Article 68 of the Basic Law of Hong Kong set the goal of direct popular election of all members of the Legislative Council. Why is pursuing such a goal now a crime?

The arrest warrants will wake up more Hongkongers. They will realize that without true democracy, Hong Kong has no future.

Statement of Baggio Leung Chung Hang

On the Arrest Warrants Issued by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

On August 3, the Hong Kong Security Bureau issued an arrest warrant against Mr. Elmer Yuen, Mr. Victor Ho, and me, accusing us of “subversion of state power”.

The Beijing-appointed Hong Kong government charges us for preparing a free election of a Hong Kong Parliament. Such an election will provide the Hong Kong people at home and abroad an opportunity to elect an institution that truly represents the people of Hong Kong.

It is more accurate to say that we, the accused, are all Hongkongers. We love Hong Kong. In the eyes of the current regime, it is a crime. Here are the true crimes which deprived the political rights of the Hong Kong people:

  • In 2014, the Chinese government announced the so-called “831 Decision,” officially rescinding its commitment to universal suffrage in Hong Kong.
  • In 2016, the Hong Kong government began the practice of arbitrarily disqualifying candidates and democratically elected members.
  • In 2020, the Beijing government enacted the Hong Kong National Security Law, taking away the remaining freedom of assembly and expression for Hongkongers.

I ran for election to the Legislative Council in 2016 and became a member of the Legislative Council. Subsequently, I was disqualified by the regime for swearing allegiance to Hongkongers, instead of Beijing. As a democratically elected representative, it is my first and foremost responsibility to serve the well-being of the Hong Kong people.

That is why I decided to join the Preparatory Committee of the Hong Kong Parliament, in the hopes of building a democratic platform for Hong Kong people to speak freely against the threat of white terror.

How ironic and nonsensical it is that we want to form a Hong Kong parliament that truly represents the people of Hong Kong but are now wanted and threatened by a “government” without the authorization of the people.

I will not bow to dictatorship. I will make every effort to participate in the preparation of a freely- elected Hong Kong Parliament that will give the people their voices.
