ELECTIONEERING must be allowed in industrial or office buildings unless the owners or management are opposed, the Democratic Party has suggested. Under present practice, no campaigning is allowed on residential premises until the owners or management give the green light. The practice will be extended to industrial or office buildings for September's Legislative Council elections, when candidates will be running for election in the profession-based functional constituencies. At a meeting with the Boundary and Election Commission yesterday, Democratic Party legislator Lee Wing-tat said the guidelines assumed owners would not allow campaigning. He said it should be assumed they would allow canvassing unless they said otherwise. Mr Lee said the present practice would make it easy for building owners to favour particular candidates. He said the recommendation would help prevent employers from depriving their employees of information. Commission chairman Mr Justice Woo said the commission would consider the party's suggestion.
