From readers: 'Patriots administering Hong Kong' justified

Editor's note: A draft decision on improving the electoral system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is being deliberated at the ongoing session of the National People's Congress. In particular, the principle of "patriots administering Hong Kong" -- ensuring that whoever is administering Hong Kong is patriotic -- has attracted wide attention. Why should people administering Hong Kong be patriots? Is this a common practice? Readers share their opinions.


Hong Kong is part of China -- it always has been and always will. That means if a person truly loves the city of Hong Kong, the precondition is that he/she loves China, to which Hong Kong belongs. Think about this. If a US presidential candidate doesn't sincerely express patriotic feelings about the United States, that largely means political suicide.
