Lu Wenduan wrote an article titled “Democratic Party’s Death and the Way to Live”, saying that he wanted to “point out the confusion” for the Democratic Party’s dilemma. He said that the Democratic Party’s death syndrome is a clinging to confrontational thinking and not running for the Legislative Council. The method “successfully speculates the Democratic Party.” He suggested that the party should run for elections as in the past. If the Democratic Party finds it difficult to reach a consensus on running for the election in the name of a party, it should allow individuals to stand for election as a member of the Democratic Party, leaving a way for the Democratic Party to stay alive; “If running for elections is completely banned, Then there is only one dead end.”
Lu Wenduan said that if the Democratic Party opens a “showdown” and refuses to stand for election to the Legislative Council, the Democratic Party will have to face doubts about whether it supports the Basic Law and allegiance to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Election of the next District Council and Legislative Council will all become doubts.
Lu Wenduan said that although the Democratic Party supports Hong Kong’s return to China and admits that it is “a member of the Chinese people” and “has a patriotic factor,” for many years it has “held the banner of democracy and rejected communism” and “democratically rejected communism”. It may be compatible with the standards of patriotism and patriotism under the “Port National Security Law”. He also said, “God commits evil, you cannot live by yourself.” If the core members of the Democratic Party fight against elections, then the political energy of the Democratic Party will begin to return to zero, and there will be no bargaining capital. .
Tian Feilong, director of the National Hong Kong and Macau Research Association, also wrote an article in Ming Pao earlier, describing the non-election of the democrats as “election speculation.”
