Electoral Commission Chairman Tong Hyu Fong announced on Friday that 21 candidates – including all 15 candidates listed under the banners of three pro-democracy groups – have been disqualified from running in Macau’s Sept. 12 elections.
Under the National Security Law, in force since 2009, Macau requires popular election candidates to formally declare their support for the Macau Basic Law and their loyalty to the judiciary.
A deadline was passed to replace those expelled with replacement candidates on Sunday, but Chiang said they expect any new candidates to be disqualified.
