Around 100 people protested against chief executive candidate Carrie Lam on Sunday.
Protesters chanted slogans such as “No to Carrie Lam” and “Restart the political reform process” as they marched from Causeway Bay to the government’s headquarters in Admiralty.
Former lawmakers Alan Leong and Audrey Eu also took part in the protest. Leong accused Lam of being arrogant, saying that she might take an even more hard-line approach than incumbent leader Leung Chun-ying, RTHK reported.
“I am determined to do all I can to stop Lam from rising to power,” Leong said.
Eu expressed concern over the election, and urged the public to participate in the unofficial referendum on the leadership race.
The other contenders for chief executive include ex-judge Woo Kwok-hing and former finance chief John Tsang. The election takes place on March 26.
