The people speak
Roman Mok, 50, health care worker, City One constituency (Sha Tin) It's understandable that Ronny Tong Ka-wah wants to run in the district council elections because he is eyeing the 'super lawmaker' seat in Legco. I hope more pan-democrats win seats to counterbalance government-friendly groups.
Lok Yee, 63, trading, City One constituency (Sha Tin) Ronny Tong has no track record in serving our district. He shouldn't run in district council elections just because he wants to run for the super seat in Legco.
William Chan, 49, Lok Tsui constituency (Tuen Mun) The atmosphere this year is more lukewarm than in 2007 despite the standoff between Albert Chan and Albert Ho. I'm worried the government-friendly camp will benefit from pan-democratic infighting.
Kalan Wong, 48, tourism, Lung Sheung constituency (Wong Tai Sin) I mainly consider the election platform and party affiliation. There have been a number of incidents, like the HKU political scandal, so more young voters have come out.
Jimmy Kwok, 29, information technology, Lung Sheung constituency (Wong Tai Sin) The candidate's popularity doesn't matter. Politics is everyone's concern so it's okay for the district council election to be politicised. Frankly, everyone does district work the same way.
Tsang Shui-fung, 50, housewife, Lung Sheung constituency (Wong Tai Sin) I came to vote to fulfil my civic responsibility. I could feel a more tense atmosphere this year.
