One fifth of the Democratic Party's votes on Hong Kong Island, or about 26,000, came from people who had intended to support the Eu-Ho ticket, according to pollster Robert Chung Ting-yiu. He also said his polling had shown veteran Democrat Martin Lee Chu-ming had had no need to make his crisis call for last-minute support to save his Legco seat. Exit polls also found that new voters had distributed their support between pro-Beijing and pro-democracy camps, he told an HKU forum on post-election analysis, which was sponsored by the South China Morning Post. The Democrats have been heavily criticised for making the last-minute crisis call, which is believed to have condemned Cyd Ho Sau-lan to defeat in the Hong Kong Island constituency. Ms Ho was placed second on a list with Audrey Eu Yuet-mee. Party leader Yeung Sum and Mr Lee netted 131,787 votes, compared with the 73,842 for the Eu-Ho ticket. The Democratic Alliance for Betterment of Hong Kong ticket led by chairman Ma Lik received 74,657 votes, securing seats for himself and Choy So-yuk. Dr Chung, director of the University of Hong Kong's Public Opinion Programme, said tactical voting and electioneering were now common, but he said some political parties were using exit polls - which were only supposed to be published after voting had ended - to influence voters. Kuan Hsin-chi, of Chinese University, predicted the Tung administration would find it more difficult to canvass support from Legco as support from the Liberal Party and the pro-government camp would be more unpredictable. As regards relations between Legco and the Executive Council, Professor Kuan said it would take some time to assess the attitude of the newcomers in Legco toward the government. It was difficult to predict, he added. Political commentator Allen Lee Peng-fei called on new lawmakers to enhance communication with the central government, which was increasingly concerned with Hong Kong's political climate after the two July 1 marches. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Democratic Development Network said it would spend two months compiling a report on various election blunders. It appealed to candidates or returning officers who witnessed any irregularities to provide evidence.
