選舉開支選舉呈請被駁回

April 10th, 2009

立法會資訊科技界別選舉中敗北的莫乃光指譚偉豪去年宣布參選前,透過有線電視廣告時段播放八輯《IT達人TALK》短片,涉及費用二十二萬元,與其宣布參選相距僅一周,惟譚偉豪未有將費用計入其申報的十八萬七千元選舉經費中。莫乃光質疑,對方實際選舉開支超出界別容許的三十三萬六千元上限,加上《廣播條例》本身禁止任何政治廣告出現在電視上,要求法庭宣布譚偉豪當選無效,但有關選舉呈請被高等法院駁回。

法 官在判詞中指出,雖然有關短片具有向資訊科技界宣傳譚偉豪的作用,但譚偉豪當時尚未正式宣布參選,短片不可能是宣傳其參選人身份,而且短片並無明示或暗示 公眾投票予譚偉豪,加上短片內容輕鬆(如介紹資訊科技界的流行衣着),難以被視為「政治」廣告。法官認為,在選前播放有關短片,不會對莫乃光構成不公。

至 於播放《IT達人TALK》涉及的二十二萬廣告費用,法官指出,由於短片很難介定為與選舉有密切關係,加上譚偉豪的代表律師指出,有線電視收取的二十二萬 元,是作為播放費用,而非製作費,因為短片的版權屬電視台所有,故法官同意,譚偉豪只需將宣布參選後,在個人網站轉載《IT達人TALK》涉及的兩萬元費 用計入選舉經費。不過,譚偉豪須修正在選舉開支中漏報逾三千元的經費,警方亦正就譚偉豪早前沒向選舉主任提交短片拷貝進行調查。

區議會美林區選呈請得直

December 19th, 2008

高等法院判決,去年沙田區議會美林選區的選舉結果無效。判詞指,在選舉勝出的民建聯候選人袁貴才,在競選單張指對手民主黨梁永雄不是全職區議員,內容失實。判詞指,梁永雄申報是全職區議員,雖有一份提供殯儀服務的兼職,但相對其出席率高達九成而言,認為並無不妥。選舉事務處表示,會在議席空缺刊登後,盡快安排補選。
