China should explain to Hong Kong people how the setting up of the provisional legislature fits in with the principle of 'Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong', says Chief Secretary Anson Chan Fang On-sang. Implementing that principle meant allowing freely elected representatives of the people to take part in organising the future Special Administrative Region government, she said. 'This is the meaning of Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong as stipulated clearly in the Joint Declaration and the Basic Law,' she said. The Government would not do anything to undermine the authority of the present Legco, Mrs Chan said. 'We will co-operate fully with the current Legco.' The Government was still waiting for concrete demands from the Preparatory Committee, she said. The Government would co-operate with the committee under the three principles laid out by the Governor in his policy speech last October. The principles were that such co-operation was consistent with the Joint Declaration and Basic Law, did not undermine the authority of the Hong Kong Government, and did not affect the morale and loyalty of the civil service. Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee Chu-ming said his party would make sure the Government did not provide assistance to the provisional Legco.
