Minority voting: so happy everyone has a chance to run

68-year-old Mr. Zhou and his family went to the polling station at the bus terminal of West Kowloon Station to vote. He was happy that he had the opportunity to vote this time. He stated that he was 68 years old and he was a resident of the district. He was very kind to the "antique bus" ticket station, because he had relatives who used to be bus drivers and saw the "old feeling" at the ticket station.

Regarding the Director of the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau, Zeng Guowei, said earlier that the primary election violated the National Security Law, Mr. Zhou believed that the SAR officials "followed too closely with the car" and "exhibited too much loyalty." He supports this primary election and hopes that there will be more democratic voices in the legislation.

Indian man Stephen took his son Peter to the station to vote. He was interviewed in English and stated that he was of Indian descent, but emphasized that he was born in Hong Kong (Born in Hong Kong). Stephen believes that everyone should have the opportunity to run and is happy that everyone has the opportunity to run this time. When asked about his opinions on the National Security Law, Stephen said that he did not read the provisions carefully and was inconvenient to comment.

Citizens hope to continue to have a primary election mechanism

Miss Liang put on "Zhuzui" and came to the polling station to vote. She called herself a Kowloon East voter and came here simply because of the "antique bus". She said she hoped to use ballots to express Hong Kong people's desire for freedom.

She pointed out that in the past Legislative Council elections, some citizens who supported the democrats could not choose their favorite candidates. This time, because of the anti-amendment incident, everyone realized that they had to "select." She hopes that the primary election mechanism will continue to be implemented in the future to reflect the opinions of different factions.

She also pointed out that the National Security Law is more direct than Article 23 and the "Fugitive Offenders Ordinance", which shows that the central government wants to "rule with iron fists" in Hong Kong. She hopes that Hong Kong people can pursue democracy in a variety of ways, but not "fight against the yellow".
