Chinese Constitution and the Basic Law / Empire Theatre in North Point 00:59:00 2017-12-12
On Tuesday's Backchat, the Basic Law, China's Constitution and the Party. Beijing officials have said that that the Constitution was the foundation for "One Country, Two Systems" and had a "mother-son" relationship with the Basic Law. The Liaison Office's legal affairs chief said that the core part of the Constitution was the endorsement of the Communist Party, and that some Hongkongers had asked if they could accept the city was part of the country but wanted to reject the leadership of the Communist Party - but in fact there was no way to separate China from the Chinese Communist Party, as the nation was led and established by the Party. Should we accept we are part of Red China? With Civil Servants now receiving briefings from prominent party officials is the Party changing its role here? Can you love China, but not the Party? What is the relationship between China's Constitution and the Basic Law? Email, or call 23388266. After 9.20, the fate of the Empire Theatre in North Point.
