Radical pan-democratic group Power Voters will challenge the Democratic Party - which it calls a betrayer of democracy - in November's district council elections. Power Voters, founded a year ago by activists discontent with the approval of electoral reforms, made its direct challenge in a letter to the Democratic Party yesterday. Power Voters chairman Anthony Lam Yue-yeung accused the party of being an 'accomplice of the pro- establishment camp' for voting for the electoral reforms, which the group says undermined the city's progress towards universal suffrage. The group will field 11 candidates in November and most of them took part in a protest yesterday at the Democratic Party's headquarters in Prince Edward. They handed the letter to its chief executive, Lam Cheuk-ting, along with roasted pigeons in mockery of the party's flying pigeon logo. In the letter addressed, to the Democrats' chairman, Albert Ho Chun-yan, Power Voters wrote: 'If you are willing to apologise and resign [for the vote for electoral reform], we will stop 'clashing districts' with your party in the election.' Anthony Lam is expected to challenge the party's district councillor Andrew Fung Wai-kwong in Southern District. Former disc jockey Ray Chan Chi-chuen, now a deputy spokesman for Power Voters, said he would challenge Democratic party lawmaker Lee Wing-tat, who is expected to run in Kwai Tsing but has yet to register his candidacy. Anthony Lam said six candidates would register their candidacies today - five of these would run in Central and Western District. Lam Cheuk-ting called on the group to think twice before they registered their candidacies. 'Who would benefit the most if you challenge us? The answer is clear: the pro-establishment camp,' Lam said. Meanwhile, the Civic Party announced its line-up last night. It is fielding 42 candidates including party lawmaker Ronny Tong Ka-wah, who will run in City One, Sha Tin, and vice-chairman Albert Lai Kwong-tak, who will run in Bays Area, Southern District. It is the first time both have contested a district council election. The party hopes to retain its 11 seats. The November poll has drawn many political heavyweights, who hope to run for the five new Legislative Council functional constituency 'super seats' for elected district councillors. The Legco poll is in 2012.
