Electoral Commission Chairman and judge of the Court of Second Instance Tong Hio Fong has reported that the Commission currently has 36 cases referred to it apropos campaigning before the allowed official election campaign period.
“We have discussed the cases during meetings and consider the cases have violated the regulation,” said Fong. “Related cases will be sent to the police for further procedures.”
The chairman confirmed that four to five cases had broken the law, saying that related cases performed promotions via online platforms, telephone calls and promotion on the street.
According to the Electoral Law, a penalty of MOP2,000 to MOP10,000 would be levied on those who have campaigned prior to the approved period, namely September 2 to 15.
Meanwhile, Fong reported that the fifth candidate of New Macau Dream has requested to pull out of the running.
In addition, the chairman revealed that 32 voters had repeated nomination of candidates for the indirect election, claiming that the voting power of the related individuals would be invalidated.
