Non-establishment candidates have been shut out in the geographical constituency races in the Legco elections.

By contrast, the DAB has emerged as the big winner, with its candidates winning in each of the 10 constituencies.

In Hong Kong Island East, Stanley Ng of the FTU and the DAB's Edward Leung are the winners, defeating Marcus Liu of the New People's Party and MTR whistleblower Jason Poon.

In Hong Kong Island West, Regina Ip of the New People's Party and the DAB's Chan Hok-fung won. Pro-democracy independent candidate Fong Lung-fei finished a distant third.

In Kowloon Central, the DAB's Starry Lee and district councillor Kitson Yang finished ahead of independent Mandy Tam.

Lee won 95,976 votes, the most among geographical constituency candidates.

In Kowloon West, the DAB's Vincent Cheng and Scott Leung of Kowloon West New Dynamic came in first and second. Former lawmaker Frederick Fung was defeated.

In Kowloon East, Bill Tang of the FTU and the DAB's Frankie Ngan beat three others, including Jeffrey Chan of the Path of Democracy.

In New Territories South East, Stanley Li of the DAB and Connie Lam of Professional Power finished ahead of Daryl Choi, vice chairman of the Sai Kung District Council.

In New Territories North West, Holden Chow of the DAB and Roundtable's Michael Tien easily defeated Caspar Wong of Third Side.

In New Territories North East, the DAB's Gary Chan and Dominic Lee of the New People's Party defeated two non-establishment candidates, Nelson Wong and Allan Wong of the Path of Democracy.

In New Territories South West, the DAB's Ben Chan and Joephy Chan of the FTU took the most votes, brushing aside independent democrat and district councillor Adrian Lau.
