Last-minute lobbying in the functional constituency contests was active - but mainly behind-the-scenes. With most candidates staying indoors and canvassing by telephone, campaigning on the day was generally low-key. However, Hong Kong Progressive Alliance candidates did join Election Committee colleagues for a parade of campaign vehicles in Central. 'I visited the wholesale markets at six this morning and then travelled around in my campaign vehicle,' said Wholesale and Retail constituency hopeful Wong Siu-yee. 'Also, I have been doing some campaigning on behalf of Tsang Yok-sing in Kowloon West.' But Ngai Shiu-kit, party candidate for the Industrial (Second) constituency, said it was too late to do any more canvassing. Other politically affiliated candidates found themselves focusing on helping colleagues in the geographical elections. Those from the Liberal Party, whether elected unopposed or facing poll battles, went to New Territories East to canvass for party leader Allen Lee Peng-fei. Democrats Sin Chung-kai and Wu Chi-wai, candidates in the Information Technology, and Sports, Performing Arts, Culture and Publication constituencies respectively, canvassed in New Territories West and Kowloon West. Accountancy constituency hopeful Edward Chow Kwong-fai said he had 'met some accountants on the street at the Peak and appealed to them to vote'. Rival Peter Chan Po-fun said he would conduct a mini-inspection of polling stations near his home after casting his own vote. Raymond Ho Chung-tai in Engineering and Cheung Man-kwong in Education said they had similar plans.
