The District Council elections saw a record voter turn-out yesterday in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government Chief Executive CY Leung said the turn-out, of about 1.4 million voters, attested to the importance of the District Councils’ role and function.
The results have seen incumbent Amy Yung returned to represent Discovery Bay on the Islands District Council.
Randy Yu Ho Kwan won the vote for the Lantau constituency, while Sammi Fu Hiu Lam won Tung Chung North and Holden Chow Ho Ding won Tung Chung South.
The Islands District Council is one of 18 in Hong Kong, with 21 members – 10 elected, eight ex-officio and three appointed by the Chief Executive.
The Electoral Affairs Commission said the counting of votes went smoothly and was completed at 5.55am today.
“The election was concluded in an open, honest and fair manner. Polling and vote counting were overall smooth. The Electoral Affairs Commission is satisfied with the arrangements,” the Chairman of the Commission, Mr Justice Barnabas Fung Wah, said after the announcement of all election results.
