Hong Kong elections: record turnout and landslide pro-democracy wins

Post by tiktok » Mon, 25 Nov 2019 9:08 pm

Some numbers from the Hong Kong district elections today (the only way the general population can vote):

Voter turnout was 71.2%, compared with 47% in the last elections in 2015.

Pro-democracy (i.e. anti China) parties won 17 out of 18 district councils. Previously all councils were under pro-China control.

Pro-China candidates received 13.3% of the popular vote, compared with 54.6% previously.

A very strong message has been sent by the people.
I not troll/wacko/spammer.
Me no expat. Me foreigner.
