Can a management committee disqualify owners from participating in elections for the committee?

In Wong Kam Tong v Tin Shing Court, Yuen Long (IO) (No 1) ([2012] 2 HKLRD 614, CA) a management committee adopted rules governing the process of electing new committee members. Would-be candidates were required by the rules to sign a copy of certain rules regulating the conduct of candidates and home visits. The applicant had refused to sign the rules but contended that we was entitled to be treated as a candidate. The Court of Appeal held that it was arguably lawful to make rules such as those in the present case but refused to settle the point since the applicant no longer sought to contest the question.
