"Election" !!! Why bother at this point. Democracy already left the building.

23 ( +26 / -3 )

People need to start leaving, China's grip will just increase

lol. Taking a page from Putin's "democracy" I see. Restricting the candidates, delaying the elections just as the opposition gains support, changing the rules of the elections in mid-election, banning campaigning on the part of the opposition, extending the counting of ballots by days...the only thing Vlad The Bad did that the Chinese have yet to do is: create fake opposition parties to split anti-government voters (often with party names that are nearly identical to opposition parties, or even candidates with similar names and appearances, all from pro-gov parties!)

Seriously! Example: In Russia's latest "elections" farce, a district in St. Petersburg now has three, yes three, bald and bearded candidates in their 60s, all "named" Boris Vishnevsky! Two of them are from Pro-Kremlin parties, changed their real names for the elections...and it was allowed!

Then there's the (real) "Communist Party", fielding candidates named "Vitaly Petrov, Nikolai Volkov and Anastasia Udaltsova"...these individuals had to run against the (fake, pro-Kremlin) "Communists of Russia Party"...and candidates whose names coincidentally happened to be..."Vitaly Petrov, Nikolai Volkov and Anastasia Udaltsova!"

(Where is the Western media in all of this, by the way? I had to get this from Russian sources like The Moscow Times...all the western media will say is "Putin's party wins again". Are they nervous about reporting on elections fraud, perhaps? Why?! )

Back to Hong Kong - stick a fork in it: It's Done. Keep resisting further and you'll get the "Uighur" Treatment (China now allows Hong Kong citizens to be extradited over to the Mainland to face prosecution under the completely farcical, communist-party-dictated law codes).

So much for the Big Lie that was sold to the world by the unelected corrupt-o-crats now slithering around Beijing...you know the one: "Hong Kong - One Country, Two Systems"? Smh!~

The "token" opposition is so they can say "see, we are inclusive".

The curtain has fallen away completely and the world can see Chinese hypocrisy and lies. One country, one system. They seem to have lost the second system somewhere in the CCP party room.

So, if we like the party-to-be-government, it's democracy, if we don't it's not.? Just saying, we sound like all those non-democratic countries already

Fascist China strikes again. All democracies must begin reducing their trade with China. And stop educating their students.

All Russian elections are rigged and any popular opposition is imprisoned, banished or targeted for murder.

When is a democracy not a democracy?

To describe it as an election is to misuse the word. China is in total breach of all its treaty obligations in respect of Hong Kong.

Who now can trust any agreement they may make?

Their true nature is now patently on display for the whole world to see, fraudulent liars with a penchant for genocide and brutal oppression.

Not that often I agree with Fighto but this time he hit the nail on the head.

Boycott Hong Kong.

Boycott Communist China.

Boycott the Genocide Games 2022.

We are living in the downfall of Hong Kong period. 4 yrs to destroy an amazing place with such a bright future. Nice job Beijing. Impressive.

And you can bet this muppet is card carrying CCP member. A total sham right from the start.
