A group of New Territories villagers intends to test a landmark ruling that gave non-indigenous residents full voting rights in local elections. Non-indigenous residents of Ha Kwai Chung Tsuen have written to the Home Affairs Bureau, calling for another election in their village. 'This is reasonable. We just want to have our voting rights,' said Yip Chung-chun, a spokesman for the group. Mr Yip said the residents had not decided yet whether to put up a candidate. It is the first call the Government has received for an election to be held again since the Court of Appeal ruled in January that discrimination in favour of indigenous villagers breached the Basic Law. That ruling gave thousands of rural residents the right to vote in and contest village elections. A spokeswoman for the Home Affairs Bureau said the Government was studying the request. Ha Kwai Chung Tsuen village head Tang Pak-shing said he had no objection to the appeal. The village in Kwai Chung has about 500 residents, half of whom are non-indigenous. Indigenous villagers are those who can trace their male ancestry back to residents in 1898.
