Officials have made false statements about voter registration for May's election, provisional legislator Elsie Tu says. Mrs Tu, speaking on RTHK's Letter to Hong Kong, said television announcements claimed anyone who voted in 1995 could vote again without re-registering. They also said anyone who had lived in Hong Kong for seven years could vote. 'These statements are false,' Ms Tu said. She said voters' identity cards had to be printed with three stars or a statement that the holder had the right of abode. 'Time until the next election is short, and the Constitutional Affairs Bureau cannot afford to make any mistakes,' Mrs Tu said. 'If an error has been made, it should be corrected repeatedly through the same channel.' Mrs Tu is worried voters will go to polling stations and discover they are not registered as permanent residents. The bureau has mailed application forms to people so they can register as permanent residents, but approval takes at least six weeks. Voter registration ends in mid-January.
