Around 80 people from the pro-Beijing group Voice of Loving Hong Kong staged a demonstration in Tamar on Wednesday, calling on Chief Executive Carrie Lam to annul the results of last month's district council elections.

The pro-establishment camp were trounced in the polls, with voters punishing them for their support of the now killed-off extradition bill, and for standing behind the government during the city's months of social unrest.

The Voice of Loving Hong Kong says the pro-democracy camp's landslide win can only mean that the elections were rigged.

Members marched from Admiralty Centre to the Chief Executive's Office, before heading to the government's headquarters to hand in a petition letter.

One of those taking part, Lee Fai, said he believes he personally witnessed an irregularity with the election because staff didn't appear to tick him off their list when he cast his ballot.

"It is not according to the election way. First of all, I didn't see the guy check the eligible voters list. I didn't see it. He didn't do it," Lee said.

"Also I've heard rumours that lots of young guys, once they cast their ballots, they turned around and queued up [to vote] again."

There was a record turnout for the polls on November 24, with pro-democracy councillors winning around 390 of the 452 seats up for grabs, taking control of all but one of the city's 18 district councils.
