1:05 am
been in one direction and that is taking seats away from pro establishment candidates delivering them to the pound democratic camp this loose some brother organization of individuals independents also parties supporting this the pope pro democracy pan democratic cause just to remind you of the numbers there are 452 seats that have been contested and the latest figures we have are that 201 of those seats are now in the control of the pro-democracy groups that is very close to the 50 percent mark when they would have a majority and in fact some media organizations here in hong kong are already predicting that they have in fact crossed over that 50 percent threshold by comparison on the other side of the story it is a very dismal tale indeed with the with the pro establishment pro beijing parties
1:06 am
reduced to just $28.00 seats so that's $201.00 versus $28.00 and they said course is a complete reversal because the pro establishment group groups very strong that this grassroots level of organizing these local councils and so on they had very much been in the majority having 2 thirds to 3 quarters of all the seats so they have lost an awful lot of seats and one party in particular the d.a.b. that's the largest probe aging. party they've lost well over 100 seats are completely decimated by this in terms of the power structures here it doesn't make a huge difference because these are local councils after all there is they have some influence over the election committee that selects the chief executive and a few of the seats in the legislative council which is hong kong's parliament but it is more the message it sends to the government here and also by association of course to beijing lower and given all that what response can we expect from the
1:07 am
government. government will be very disquieted by the by this will be looking at this very worried indeed there had been i think some thought on the government that they had been expecting to have losses on the pro establishment side but it was nothing like this having a loss mainly because the feeling was that there would be a moderate center who would be worried about giving their support to demonstrations that have effectively turned violent that people would be worried by that and steer away from that from the government's point of view that the worrying part of this is that millions of people have come out to vote millions of people have been out on the street protesting against the government and protesting demanding greater autonomy within china now they have done this in the form of a referendum and we know that these these demonstrations have turned increasingly
