All People’s Life To Establish A Law on The Maintenance of Hong Kong Security May 22, 12:10
At the National People’s Congress, which begins on July 1, it has become clear that the government will be able to develop laws to maintain public safety in Hong Kong, where protests continue, and there is growing alarm among Hong Kong citizens that if the Chinese government enacts laws directly, the two systems will be lost.
The spokesman for The People’s Republic of China announced that it would hold a press conference on Sunday night to discuss “the development of a legal system to protect the security of the nation in Hong Kong” as one of the agendas of all people starting on The 22nd.
Zhang’s spokesman did not elaborate, but said that “it is entirely necessary to establish a legal system and its enforcement mechanisms to protect national security based on the new situation,” and indicated that it would be necessary to develop legislation to maintain security in Hong Kong, where protests have been going on since last year.
The Hong Kong government has sought to enact the National Security Ordinance, a law to maintain security, but it has not been implemented due to fierce opposition from its citizens, and the Chinese government has decided that it is not possible to maintain security simply by leaving the law to the Hong Kong government.
Several Hong Kong media outlets have reported that the Chinese government will directly enact legislation to replace the National Security Act in the last year.
In addition, there is growing alarm among Hong Kong citizens, with pro-democracy legislators and civic groups reacting violently to the “loss of one country and two systems completely.”
