Hong Kong: Voters react to opposition's landslide electoral victory

Гонконг, Hong Kong
нояб. 25, 2019 в 12:43 GMT +00:00 · Опубликовано

Hongkongers reacted to a stunning landslide victory of the opposition groups in weekend community-wide elections, on Monday, where they captured 389 of 452 elected seats.

"It is an encouragement to all of the Hongkongers that after all this, movement or revolution in this past half-year, we still got most of our Hong Kong people to support the pro-democratic side of the election," one of the voters Yau Hon-pong said.

He continued: "It's the last moment for Hong Kong people to believe in election or some so-called democratic procedure which [is] held by the Chinese government. I think if they don't treat this election result seriously, it just puts... Hong Kong people to more extreme and we may loss our faith to end in democratic procedure."

Another voter Kong Kwai-sang believes China "makes so much pressure on Hong Kong," adding "this is a clear message... government needs to change."

However, many voters still don't count the victory in the district council election as a success because five key demands laid out by the protesters have not been met yet. "People are still supporting our movement despite escalating violence but the victory is only a small win because our five demands are not met especially independent inquiry into police and a dual universal suffrage," voter Lee said.

On Sunday night and the early hours of Monday, opposition candidates won a stunning victory in district elections, capturing 389 of 452 elected seats. Hong Kong's 18 districts have long been dominated by pro-government councillors, who used to hold over 300 seats.

A record 4.13 million people had registered to vote - more than half the Special Administrative Region's population - and 2.94 million people went to the polls. Turnout was over 71 per cent, versus a mere 47 per cent in the 2015 election.
