In Hong Kong, millions of people went to the polls for district elections Sunday, handing pro-democracy candidates a stunning victory. Pro-democracy candidates won nearly 90 percent of the seats—400 of the 452 seats—amid the ongoing, massive pro-democracy protests that have rocked the Chinese-ruled territory. This is one of the winning candidates, Kelvin Lam.
Kelvin Lam: “The voters are not happy with how the government dealt with the protests so far. Particularly in the last five months, and police brutality is actually over the top, I think. And I think that the Hong Kong people should really, really leverage on this result. To ask for more democracy in the future.”
