香港大學民意研究計劃的最新調查顯示,四成多受訪者反對市民接受人大常委會較早前就香港普選所作的決定,比贊成市民接受的,多出九至十七個百分點,而在一個隨機抽樣的慎思式民調受訪者中,有64%受訪者認為,若政改方案不能在立法會通過,責任在中央和香港政府以及贊成人大決定的議員及社會人士。

 

「和平佔中」呼籲當局順應民意,設計容讓港人享有普及而平等的普選方案,不要當歷史罪人。

 

人 大常委在8月31日通過香港普選特首的決定,刻意限制中央不接受的人士「出閘」參選,有違公平普及的國際普選標準,難怪被形容為「落閘」方案。 港大的民調於本月19至24日進行,以隨機抽樣電話訪問逾一千人,結果顯示,只有30%(個人而言)或35%(從社會整體考慮)認為應該支持人大決定,而 反對人大決定的,則分別有47%(個人而言)和44%(從社會整體考慮),反映無論從什麼層面考慮,社會反對人大決定的都比支持者多,當中尤以年青人的反 對比例更高,達59%。

 

民研計劃更以隨機抽樣方式,描出一百名市民代表出席香港電台今(27日)早的慎思式民調節目,受訪者反對人大決定的比例更高達五成半;若立法會最終不能通過 政改方案,最多人認為中央政府應負最大責任(33%),連特區政府(25%)、贊成決定的議員和社會人士,共有64%受訪者認為他們須為方案被否決負上責 任;認為反對決定的議員和社會人士須負上責任的,有28%。

 

「和平佔中」指出,民意清晰反對人大的落閘方案,特區政府應該從善如流,向中央政府反映真實的香港民意,促請人大撤回決定,讓港人享有公平而普及的真普選,千 萬不要逆民意而行,成為香港民主發展史上的歷史罪人。 「和平佔中」又警告,若立法會的民意代表背棄人民意願,繼續支持人大的落閘方案,日後必將受人民唾棄。

[ OCLP Statement 27 Sep 2014 ]

Public opinion: government and supporters are to blame if political reform package vetoed

OCLP: let government lift barrier for genuine elections

 

The latest survey by the HKU Public Opinion Programme indicates that 40% plus of those interviewed opposed the NPC Standing Committee's decision on universal suffrage. This is 9 - 17% higher than those in favour. And, in a random deliberation poll, the results show 64% of respondents of the view that the Central and SAR governments and the legislators and members of the public who support them should be blamed should the measure fail to pass the legislature.

 

The OCLP appeals to the authorities to take heed of public opinion, and come up with a reform package which is truly fair and equal. History will not be kind to those who fail to measure up at this crucial hour.

 

On August 31, the NPC Standing Committee promulgated a package of measures on the election of the Chief Executive. The decision deliberately seeks to screen out potential candidates undesirable to Beijing. This is against the principle of fairness and justice and a violation of accepted international standards. The HKU poll was conducted between August 19th and 24th, consisting of over 1000 random telephone interviews. The findings show a support rate of 30% as a matter of personal preference, and of 35% as a matter of overall societal interest. On the other hand, those against amount to 47% and 44% respectively. It is clear that the no vote far out paces the yes vote, however one looks at it. This is especially obvious among young people, with 59% against. 

 

The Public Opinion Programme conducted a further exercise on 27th. By random sampling, 100 members of the public were invited to a Radio Television Hong Kong deliberation show. There, the no vote was even higher, reaching 55%. On the apportionment of responsibility should the measure fail to win passage at the Legislative Council, 33% believed the Central Government is most to blame, with 25% pointing the figure at the SAR Government. Overall, 64% attributed responsibility to the two authorities and their supporters in the legislature and in the community. Only 28% cast blame on those opposed.  

 

OCLP wishes to point out that public opinion is clearly opposed to the NPCSC "pre-screened out" measures. We appeal to the SAR Government to heed the will of the people, communicate the truth of the situation to the Central Government, and urge the NPC to repeal the decisions made. Hong Kong deserves fair and just elections. History will not speak kindly of those who betray the people's cause. OCLP feels obligated to warn legislators that should they betray the people and continue to give support to the NPC 'pre-screened out' measures, they will soon find themselves cast out and rejected.
