Infographic: The Beijing-Imposed Changes to Hong Kong’s Electoral System
Hong Kong passed new electoral amendments on 27 May 2021 which supposedly aim to improve the electoral system in the territory.
The Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL) put together this set of infographics to show the changes which could effectively bar candidates from the pro-democracy camp from running in the upcoming Legislative Council elections and make Hong Kong’s legislature and executive even less accountable to the people they are supposed to serve.
Beijing's tightening grip into Hong Kong has led to the further restriction of rights and freedoms in the territory. ANFREL previously produced a set of infographics that tackled the sweeping National Security Law presenting key issues and how they affect freedoms in Hong Kong.
