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.

Electoral system of Hong Kong

Any Hong Kong permanent resident aged 18 or above may register as an elector in the geographical constituency in which he/she resides, except those mentally incapacitated and those serving in an armed force. Persons serving a sentence of imprisonment used to be barred from registering and voting, but a 2008 judgment by the Court of First Instance of the High Court ruled that a blanket bar was unconstitutional and that the Government had a year to change the offending provisions. The Government did not appeal the judgment, and held consultations with the public on how the law should be changed. A bill was then introduced to the LegCo, providing that no person would be barred from electoral registration or voting because of criminal conviction, even for crimes against the electoral system. It became law and entered into force on 30 October 2009.
