New Policies on Canvassing/Electioneering Activites and on Management of Exhibited Materials

Update: after a series of discussions and consultation, the said policies on Canvassing/Electioneering activities and on Management of Exhibited Materials have been approved by the Estates Development and Management Committee with immediate effect. The approved policies are attached.

Presently, canvassing/electioneering activities as well as display of posters on campus are dealt with by the policy on management of common areas as well as display of posters respectively.

In view of soaring student activities (including canvassing/electioneering activities) due to increasing student intakes, the current policies might not be able to satisfy the needs for canvassing/electioneering activities and display of posters for publicity purpose. In this connection, the Estates Office has been working with the Student Affairs Office and the Students Union in refining the relevant existing regulations/policies since early this year. Thanks to the efforts of the parties involved, the draft new policies for canvassing/electioneering activities and on Management of Poster Display have been drawn up and are ready for open consultation. After consultation, the relevant policies will be presented to the Management for approval and implementation.

Attached please find the relevant policies for consultation which will last until 4 October 2013 (Friday). You are welcome to send your views to eo@ied.edu.hk.

Shall you have urgent need for large-scale publicity, please contact our office to work out an agreeable arrangement.

Thank you for your attention.
