On Aug 2nd to Aug 5th, HKEOP collaborated with Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute (HKPORI) on a short survey regarding the Election Committee Sub-sector Election (EC Election) coming up in September 6th.

Nomination Period has started today (August 6th) while the Final Voter Registration Statistics have been published a day prior (August 5th). Thus,  the questionnaire served as a timely check on public’s understanding of the first election hosted under the new electoral system.

Respondents answered questions on their perceived familiarity of the EC Electoral System; participation in previous and current EC Elections; as well as whether registered voters are perceived to be representative of the wishes for those who do not qualify as voters. The survey results and analysis were presented at the recorded press conference below.
