Demosisto legislator Nathan Law said on Sunday that he had cast a blank ballot as a protest against the "small-circle" Chief Executive election.

Seven other pro-democracy members of the Election Committee said they had done the same after considering the views of their supporters.

Law said it would have been inappropriate for them to support even former Financial Secretary John Tsang.

He said the public are upset that they do not get a say in choosing the territory’s next leader, a situation he said was down to the central government.
