A legal challenge is brewing as the provisional legislature approaches the third reading of a bill on post-handover holidays. The Democratic Party has said it will launch a lawsuit against the provisional legislature or its office bearers should any bills complete all three readings. The draft legislation - the first bill tabled by the Chief Executive-designate's office to the provisional legislature - provides for three extra statutory holidays this year. Solicitor and provisional legislature member Kennedy Wong Ying-ho said he was not worried about the potential legal challenge. At the centre of the controversy is the legality of the interim body and whether it has usurped the constitutional functions of the present legislature by going through the legislative process of three readings before July 1. 'It's better for the legal challenge to come sooner rather than later,' Mr Wong said. 'Sooner or later, people will raise the issue and take the case to court. 'The court should make a ruling on it such as whether Hong Kong courts have the jurisdiction to hear the case.' Members will be notified of the bill's scheduled third reading on May 10 in Shenzhen at tomorrow's House Committee meeting. The Chief Executive-designate's office will present two other bills to the interim body for first reading tomorrow. They are the National Flag and National Emblem Bill, and the Regional Flag and Regional Emblem Bill. The text of the bills has been placed on the Internet at www.plc-sec.org.hk .
