To ask Her Majesty's Government whether there is any international initiative to send independent observers to monitor the local district council elections in Hong Kong due to be held on 24 November; and what assessment they have made of the basis on which those elections are being held.

We are not aware of any initiative to send international observers to monitor the upcoming District Council elections in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong district council elections will be an important opportunity for the citizens of Hong Kong to use the rights enshrined in the Basic Law to make their voices heard. With this in mind, we will of course follow the conduct of the elections closely.
