Editorial : Erosion of Basic Law's basis

【明報專訊】THE AMENDMENTS to the Constitution have gone through the National People's Congress (NPC). Tam Yiu-chung, a new member of the Standing Committee of the NPC, has said that, from now on, it may contravene the Constitution and the Basic Law and even affect one's eligibility to stand in an Legislative Council (Legco) election for one to yell "bring an end to the one-party dictatorship". His view has made citizens worry their freedom of speech may be curtailed. It is detrimental to Hong Kong people's confidence in "one country, two systems". It has added to trouble and chaos, and none can see how it may profit society.
