Pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong announced on Monday that he would run for a seat in the upcoming Legislative Council elections in Hong Kong, where a new national security law that restricts civil liberties could prevent opposition candidates from taking seats.
Wong made the announcement on Twitter, where he said he had received over 30,000 votes in recent primary elections.
“Our votes are our voice under China’s crackdown,” he wrote.
Wong was one of the top candidates to emerge from unofficial primaries held by the pro-democracy camp. It aims to win a majority of seats in the 70-seat legislature in the September election.
