The Broadcasting Authority has received two complaints about the production quality of an advertisement which promotes nominations for the Selection Committee.

The complaints have been referred to the Constitutional Affairs Branch.

The branch said opinions would be relayed to the Preparatory Committee Secretariat if necessary.

The advertisement, prepared by the Preparatory Committee, has drawn widespread criticism since it was aired on television and radio 11 days ago.

The female voice reading the Cantonese text has been accused of being dull and not having a Hong Kong accent.

Fih Fei, deputy director of the Preparatory Committee Secretariat, said: 'We know the advert is poor. We will collect the opinions and reflect them to the secretariat.'
