In the 2019 district council elections, the democrats took advantage of the anti-amendment public opinion and won the election, winning 86% of the directly elected seats in Hong Kong and dominating the 17 district councils.

She pointed out that at this stage, we must first complete the oath in batches before knowing how many of the incumbent district councilors meet the requirements of public officials.
