IT 呼聲 2012 - IT 功能界別選民登記

各位資訊科技界朋友:

2012年立法會選舉將於9月舉行,要在這次選舉投票,市民必須在5月16日前完成選民登記。在未有雙普選之前,立法會功能界別仍佔據議會一半議席,直接影響議會立法和監察及制衡政府施政,對業界和整體香港仍然非常重要。

根據政府統計數字,現時大約有七至八萬名資訊科技從業員,但已登記的 IT 界選民卻只有五千多人。在這情況下,IT 界議席的選舉結果很容易被操控,令選出的議員未能就重要的政府政策和法例修訂反映業界的專業意見,不利業界形象,影響政府及公眾對 IT 界的重視。

儘管香港社會包括專業業界對盡快取消功能界別和邁向雙普選的訴求十分清晰,然而政府不單沒有為取消功能界別鋪路,反而一再在沒有諮詢和解釋的情況下把可能易於用作「種票」的組織加入為 IT 功能界別的合資格投票的組織。

身為專業人士我們絕對不能坐視不理,任由 IT 界議席淪為政府的橡皮圖章。我們必須團結力量,鼓勵更多人認清現時議會制度的不公平,號召更多人登記成為選民。

請立即行動,登記成為 IT 界選民,並請認識的 IT 人一起登記,在 9 月的立法會選舉選出真正能夠代表我們的 IT 議員,積極發揮對監察政府施政的作用,維護公平廉潔的社會,捍衛言論自由,並為業界爭取更理想發展地位,不平則鳴。如果你已經是 IT 界選民,請與你的所屬專業學會查詢,確定你仍然是該會的有效會員,以免失去你的投票資格!

申請成為專業學會會員再登記為界別選民,可能會令人覺得頗為麻煩,但請大家不要放棄。人生有幾多個十年,IT 界和香港有有幾個四年?如果閣下有任何與登記為 IT 界選民相關問題,請與我們聯絡:info@itvoice2012.hk

IT Voice 2012 - IT Functional Constituency Voter Registration

Dear Friends in Information Technology,

The Legislative Council (Legco) Election will be held in September 2012, and citizens must be registered before 16 May 2012 to be eligible to vote. Until we have universal suffrage in Hong Kong, functional constituencies will continue to occupy half of the seats in Legco, and have a direct effect on not only legislative matters but also the monitoring of the Administration's governance, thus having an important impact on our sector and the whole of Hong Kong.

According to government statistics, there are over 70,000 IT practitioners locally, but only about 5,500 are registered to vote in the IT Functional Constituency, meaning that the election result in this sector can easily be manipulated. When the elected representative cannot reflect the sector's view on government policy and legislative issues, the result will be devastating for the image of our sector in the eyes of the Government and the public.

In spite of a clear call for universal suffrage from Hong Kong as a whole including the professional sectors, the Government has not been making preparation for the eventual removal of functional constituencies. Instead, time and time again, it has been adding organizations prone to possible vote rigging to be eligible organizations inside the IT sector.

As professionals, we cannot sit and do nothing, and let the IT functional constituency seat become a rubber stamp. We must gather our strengths and encourage more IT professionals to recognize the injustice in the system, and call for more to register to be IT voters.

Please Act Now, and register as an IT voter, and get your IT friends to do the same, so that we can choose someone who can truly represent the IT sector, one who can actively monitor the Government, protect our core values for a justice and fairness in society as well as the freedom of expression, while at the same time fight for better recognition for the development of IT in Hong Kong. Even if you are already an IT voter, please still reconfirm with your professional association to ensure your membership is still valid, to avoid any unpleasant surprises affecting your voting eligibility.

Becoming a member of a professional body and then an IT voter may be cumbersome, but DON'T GIVE UP! How many more four-year terms can we waste? If you have any questions about becoming an IT voter, please contact us at info@itvoice2012.hk .
