During the past few months, COVID-19 has completely disrupted people's daily lives. Many countries have had to postpone or cancel elections. Hong Kong, where the epidemic had preciously been brought under control, has suffered a third wave of coronavirus since July. By July 30, Hong Kong has reported 3,003 confirmed cases and 24 deaths. In this regard, Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong SAR, announced on Friday that the Legislative Council election will be postponed. This decision was made entirely out of consideration for the health and safety of Hong Kong citizens.
