The European Union’s EU has warned that it may take further action in response to China’s move to reorganize the Hong Kong election system on the 5th local time, the AFP news agency said.
In a statement today, a spokesman for the EU External Relations Office expressed concern that the reform of the election system could have a profound negative impact on Hong Kong’s democratic principles and democratically elected representatives.
“The EU is ready to take further action in response to further serious deterioration of political freedom and human rights in Hong Kong,” the spokesman said.
The National People’s Congress of China announced that it will discuss a resolution to reform Hong Kong’s electoral system at this regular session the day before the opening of the annual plenary session.
