THE results of the Legislative Council election did not reflect the wishes of the Hong Kong people, China said yesterday. At a press conference in Beijing, the Foreign Ministry spokesman, Chen Jian, described the historic polls as unfair and unreasonable. 'We don't think that this election truly reflects the will of the Hong Kong people,' he said, adding China's decision to dissolve Legco 'remains unchanged and will never change'. The deputy director of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office, Wang Fengchao, cast doubts on the fairness of the elections as he arrived in Zhuhai for a series of Preliminary Working Committee meetings. He described the polls as chaotic: 'To be fair they had to be orderly. And no one has to complain. But there were many complaints lodged.' Polling in the ninth new functional constituency, Community, Social and Personal Services, was the most chaotic, he said. China pointed out during Sino-British talks that electoral arrangements were unfair. Mr Wang declined to comment on whether the election results showed that people still supported the Democrats. He also refused to say whether China was going to tighten its policy towards Hong Kong in face of the increased number of seats gained by the Democratic Party. In Hong Kong, the Chief Secretary, Anson Chan Fang On-sang, said the election was held 'in a very orderly manner and was clearly very transparent, open and fair'. And in the United States, congressmen joined the Government in urging China to allow the Legislative Councillors elected on Sunday to serve their full terms. The elections - and particularly the impressive showing of pro-democracy forces - won widespread coverage in the US media, as well as the attention of Washington. A State Department spokesman said: 'We hope that China will permit those elected in this legislature to serve their full terms. We believe this is the best way to ensure a smooth transition and confidence in the future of Hong Kong after 1997.' Also calling on China not to dismantle the Legco structure after 1997 was Republican Senator Connie Mack. 'Hong Kong's people have shown who they want to represent them and conduct their affairs,' she said. 'Clearly Hong Kong's democrats are the people's choice despite the PRC's continued attempts to intimidate them and their followers.' Senator Mack called China's renewed vow to abolish the new-look Legco 'a profound disappointment to everyone who took seriously the commitments the PRC made in the Joint Declaration. China should respect the mandate of all the elected candidates'. Doug Bereuter, the moderate chairman of the House of Representatives Asia-Pacific sub-committee, also made reference to China's position. 'On September 17, the people of Hong Kong selected their candidates for the Legislative Council. Their choices should be respected as representing the will of the people of Hong Kong,' he said, adding that the direct elections 'have been too long delayed'. Although the US is reluctant to intervene too boldly in the Sino-British issue of Hong Kong, an official told the South China Morning Post the administration was closely monitoring both the results of the elections, and the 'noises being made by China' with regard to its future post-1997 plans.
