The date was set in accordance with section 9(2) of the Legislative Council Ordinance (542), the Gazette said, citing Chief Executive Carrie Lam. 

Due to recent COVID-19 cases, the sixth LegCo will continue to perform duties for no less than a year until the term of the seventh LegCo starts, according to a decision passed earlier at the 21st session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress.
