  • FC incumbents Felix Chung, Christopher Cheung lost
Incumbents Felix Chung and Christopher Cheung are among the big-name losers in the functional constituencies in Sunday's Legco elections.

Chung, leader of the Liberal Party who had represented the textiles and garment sector since 2012, was upset by Sunny Tan of the Federation of Industries.

Cheung, of the Business and Professionals Alliance, fell to Robert Lee, chairman of the Hong Kong Securities Association, in financial services.

Lee told RTHK that he believes he won because his sector is looking for changes.

“Having been in the industry for close to 20 years, speaking with a lot of the voters in our industry, I think we do look for change. Especially for small and medium enterprises and small brokerages, they are facing a lot of challenges. In the future, we do need to work hard and help bring them along, and hopefully we can have common prosperity amongst the different types of companies within the industry,” Lee said.

Tik Chi-yuen, the chairman of Third Side, took the social welfare seat. He said he will be a "different voice" in the legislature.

"At least I will voice out our request, asking for the democracy development in Hong Kong. And we have a different voice, to oversee the performance of our government. So, I think we can represent part of our Hong Kong citizens to work in our Legislative Council," Tik told RTHK.

In one of the most competitive functional constituency races, school principal Chu Kwok-keung beat four rivals to become the new voice for the education sector in the chamber.

The newly formed medical and health services sector, meanwhile, chose David Lam of Medical Conscience as its representative.

Among the other new faces is Kenneth Fok, vice president of the Sports Federation & HK Olympic Committee, who defeated William So in sports, performing arts, culture and publication; Duncan Chiu in technology and innovation; and Perry Yiu in tourism.

Incumbents who were re-elected include Kenneth Lau of Heung Yee Kuk, commercial sector’s Martin Liao, Tommy Cheung of catering, and Chan Chun-ying of finance.
