More than 100 Basic Law drafters and members of a consultative committee on the mini-constitution will reunite this month to mark the 10th anniversary of the handover. It will be the first reunion for members of the Basic Law Drafting Committee and Consultative Committee since the Basic Law was endorsed by the National People's Congress in 1990. Mainland drafters, including some retired officials, have been invited. Lu Ping, former director of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office and deputy secretary-general of the drafting committee, is likely to attend. But veteran pro-democracy activist Szeto Wah, who resigned from the drafting committee in protest over Beijing's suppression of the pro-democracy movement in 1989, said he would not attend the reunion dinner on May 29 because he had another gathering arranged with friends. Mr Szeto, chairman of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China, said he also had some work related to the alliance on the day. Democratic Party legislator Martin Lee Chu-ming, who resigned as a Basic Law drafter together with Mr Szeto, confirmed last night that he would join the gathering. Mr Lee said that he would be joining the event in a 'celebratory mood'. Executive Council convenor Leung Chun-ying, former secretary-general of the 180-member Consultative Committee, said he initiated the idea, which was backed by committee vice-directors Rayson Huang, Philip Kwok Chi-kuen and Ko Siu-wah. 'I think it's a good opportunity for members of the drafting committee and consultative committee to get together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the handover,' Mr Leung said. Sixteen of the drafting committee's 59 members have died since 1990.
