The "Hong Kong Re-departure Alliance" held a forum for the electoral committee sector a few days ago. 51 candidates gathered to introduce the political platform and express their opinions on designated topics.

The more than four-hour forum was "in peace", with 51 people expressing their political platforms and ideas. The common verbal and personal attacks on election forums in the past have disappeared.

It is true that in the past, under the establishment of the system and the serious opposition to the pan-people, the election forum has become a place for mutual criticism and digging of black materials. Candidates with different political views expose each other's scars. It can be said that scolding is commonplace, and it can be said that they attack opponents on different issues. "Sparks are flying."

After the electoral reform, the dichotomy of "establishment" and "pan-people" is out of fashion. Under the theme of "patriots ruling Hong Kong", candidates talked more about how to solve Hong Kong's economic and people's livelihood issues, and they competed on political platforms and concepts. It is not aimed at provoking contradictions and "winning" opponents, creating a "gentlemen's battle" and presenting a new atmosphere under the new system.

The Federation of Trade Unions and other labor organizations held exchange meetings to introduce the joint platform to candidates from the Legislative Council Election Committee, and hope that the elected members will cooperate in promoting labor policies in the future.

The new model of this election also includes a "political ecology" in which candidate competition and cooperation coexist.

51 candidates from the electoral sector competed for 40 seats. In theory, everyone has to compete with another 50 people. However, joint canvassing activities have occurred, and many political parties have joined independent candidates to call on votes.

The reason is that the electoral committee sector adopts the unanimous vote system, and the electoral committee must select 40 people from the ballots, no more or no less, so there are candidates who have room for cooperation.

The Chief Secretary for Administration, Li Jiachao, pointed out that the election campaign was not staged as a farce of personal attacks as in the past. There was even a "joint canvassing" of candidates, reflecting the competition and quality of this election.
