In February 2020, a confidential report by Chief Executive Carrie Lam to the central government was obtained by Apple Daily. In the report, Lam stated her attempt to win back the public trust and support by effectively handling the coronavirus outbreak which would serve as a political turnaround for the coming election. She also blamed the sharp decline of the public trust in government and its difficulties on handling the crisis on the smears, rumours, divisions and radicalisation by the opposition and radical netizens. Nevertheless, she also slammed the pro-government parties for not supporting her wholeheartedly, claiming being personal attacked by the pro-government figures for their own electoral purpose and criticising Executive Councillors for their poor performance. A Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute survey in late January found 75 per cent of respondents dissatisfied with the government's response to the outbreak, while Lam's support rating sunk to nine per cent in late February, the lowest on record for any leader.


The Electoral system of Hong Kong

The 35 geographical seats and seats of the Legislative Council are returned by proportional representation using the largest remainder method and the Hare quota in each of five constituencies. This system encourages and sustains multiple political parties.
