71% of the People Have Spoken

71% of the People Have Spoken

Hong Kong's district elections are normally the lowest rung of all elections but this time around, 71% of all eligible voters turned up with pro-democracy parties winning most of the seats. We ask if this is a referendum of sorts that cannot be ignored as most Hong Kongers appear to be supportive of the demonstrations that started almost 6 months ago and look set to continue into the next decade. We also discuss Carrie Lam's role as Chief Executive and whether her position looks even more vulnerable after this.


Presented by: Lyn Mak, Wong Shou Ning, Roshan Kanesan
