The election was variously described by members of the public as vulnerable to mainland influence, overly complicated and confusing, an undemocratic facade, and 'none of my business' in a street poll conducted by the Post. Terris Chan, 31, an insurance broker not qualified to vote, said the poll was undemocratic and would be subject to mainland pressure. 'The first SAR Chief Executive was elected by a small group of people - I'm disappointed to see that today's election is still dominated by a small group of people,' he said. 'The seemingly democratic system is a facade. I believe the central Government has indirect control over Hong Kong through the election of the SAR chief executive.' Car mechanic Lee Wai-kwong, 27, said he was confused by the complicated election rules. 'I don't know whether I'm a qualified voter or not. I know nothing about the operational process of the election. I think the Government should do more on promotion, and give more instructions.' Lorry driver Liu Wai-kwong, 39, said the Government should have said whether the Election Committee had the right to elect the chief executive in 2002. Mr Liu, who voted in the transport sector that will return 12 people to the committee, said: 'The Government has not declared clearly whether the 800-strong Election Committee will also be responsible for the chief executive election.' Kan Wing-sze, 18, a design student, said: 'I don't know what the Election Committee works for. All I know is that today is an election day, but it seems to me that it isn't my business.'
