President of the Legislative Council Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen overturned his own rulings yesterday (25 October) by pushing back the oath-taking process of Youngspiration’s Sixtus “Baggio” Leung Chung-hang and Regine Yau Wai-ching until ruling of the judicial review is concluded. Leung declined to supervise these two LegCo members to take their oaths once again today (26 October). Cheng Chung-tai, president of Civic Passion, demanded Andrew Leung to explain the reasoning behind the decision to overturn in the Chamber, but was told to leave the Chamber for his indecent behaviour. As Cheng, Yau and Sixtus Leung all refused to leave, the meeting was eventually adjourned.
After the incident, Cheng criticised Andrew Leung’s ruling to be imperious and should be condemned by the public. Cheng also said that it is unacceptable for Leung, who entered the LegCo while receiving no votes through the functional constituency and with his nationality in doubt, to strip the oath-taking rights from the two LegCo members. Cheng further condemned Leung as he caused such chaos within the LegCo by violating both the Basic Law and the Rules of Procedure; and along with Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, they have both been harming Hong Kong as political struggle overtakes the rule of law.
Sixtus Leung and Yau Wai-ching successfully entered the Chamber while surrounded by fellow pan-democrat LegCo members and reporters, yet Andrew Leung refused to supervise their oath-taking and later adjourned the meeting. Another LegCo member Lau Siu-lai also could not take her oath.
