Au Nuoxuan pointed out that from February to March 2020, he and Dai Yaoting successively met with pan-democrats in various districts who intend to run for the Legislative Council, and introduced them to the primary election system. At that time, some groups did not even know whether it was worth holding the primary election , and they have not yet had the opportunity to discuss this, so it was decided to hold a coordination meeting.

At that time, the budget held a coordination meeting in 6 constituencies in 5 districts and super district councils. The purpose was to gather potential candidates from each district to discuss the primary election system, including: In the election, how should DQ be replaced, and the target of elected seats in each district.

The prosecution asked whether the above-mentioned issues were mentioned in the coordination meeting, and the district said they had discussed them.

The interpreter next to him didn’t respond in time and asked: “What’s the discussion?” Au asked the prosecution: “Do I have any leftovers?” The pleaded guilty defendants who attended the hearing in the extended court, including Feng Dachun and Liang Huangwei, laughed in the prisoner’s column , Zhu Kaidi talked with the correctional staff.

Participants of the Nine East Conference include Joshua Wong and Tam Tak Chi

The district pointed out that at that time, Tai Yaoting or Cai Zehong, then chairman of the Kwun Tong District Council, opened a WhatsApp group called "35+Nine East".

The prosecution read out multiple names in multiple groups, including Dai, Cai, Zhao Jiaxian, Shi Delai, Huang Zhifeng, Wu Zhiwei, Tan Dezhi, etc.

Au added that the above-mentioned people, together with Huang Yat-xu and Liang Kaiqing, attended the first coordination meeting of Kowloon East.

Don't make too lengthy descriptions

During the period, Judge Li Yunteng said that the district's statement was rather wordy, and he mentioned the names of many relevant people and political parties, which made it difficult for the congressmen to translate. He hoped that he could read the evidence sentence by sentence to reduce the difficulties for interpreters. He also gave an example: "Just like what i am doing." Au Wenyan said: "I will work hard."

Officials don't know what the soul boy mechanism is

Au recalled the main differences in the meeting, and said: "I remember that the main contradiction in the meeting was the dispute between Joshua Wong and Tak-chi Tam on the replacement mechanism." He pointed out that Joshua Wong believed that the "spiritual boy mechanism" should be used to select the substitute, and the judge After hearing this, Chen Qingwei obviously didn't understand why.

The District Councilor explained to Chuan that the English translation of the word "spiritual child" should be "soulchild", and explained to the judge: "I will talk during battles." This caused the public to laugh.

Tan believes that candidates should be determined by voting results

Au continued to explain that the mechanism proposed by Huang is that the winner of the primary election will be disqualified in the future, and the "DQ" person can choose a substitute.

However, Tam Tak-chi's team questioned why they did not use rankings to create a substitute mechanism, that is, they are ranked according to the voting results of the primary elections, and the second-runners are the substitutes. Take the Jiudong Constituency as an example, where three candidates were elected for the Legislative Council, and the fourth-ranked candidate It is a substitute.

16 defendants pleaded not guilty.
