Varsity asks first-time voters in the Legislative Council election to share their thoughts about the upcoming polls
As the countdown continues, we talk to young voters about the issues that matter to them and how they will decide on who to vote for. The first in our #My1stVote series is 21 year-old student Alison Li.
Li says she wants to vote for a candidate who is able to fight for Hongkongers interests by negotiating with the central government,
“Compared with the localists, the pan-democrats have a more moderate attitude when they talk to the central government on [things like] freedom of the press. That’s the only way the central government will agree to talk. In contrast the localists play hardball with the central government, which just pushes them further away from the negotiation table and therefore from the goals they promote. So I will vote for the pan-dems.”
