Legislative Council president, Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen, said today incumbent lawmakers will not need to take an oath again and that most committee chairs will be elected according to the Rules of Procedures.

He made the remarks after the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress passed a decision for the current term Legco to continue to discharge duties for one more year, and said he welcomes the decision.

Leung urged lawmakers of different political spectrum to communicate rationally in the next year, fulfill their constitutional responsibilities, and lead Hong Kong out of difficulties. And hopes that everyone would restore calm and cherish their work in the coming year.

The session will begin in the middle of October.
