Youth views on Legco: new report from HKFYG Youth I.D.E.A.S. think tank
Youth I.D.E.A.S. think tank report No 11
18-34 year-olds have reservations about Hong Kong's Legislative Council (Legco) and indicate that greater efforts could strengthen its connection with the public. Almost 60% of the 539 who responded to this randomized phone survey said they had no trust in Legco. Another 66% thought the HKSAR Government was also untrustworthy. Worse still, close to a third said that there was a lack of rational debate in these forums. Some 28% agreed that it represented diverse opinions.
