An unofficial citywide election conducted by Hong Kong’s pro-democracy camp might have violated new national security laws by "subverting state power", said Chief Executive Carrie Lam on July 13, 2020. The previous weekend, Hong Kong’s opposition parties organised a two-day primary election to narrow down their candidates and increase their chances of seizing majority control of the city's 70-seat Legislative Council in upcoming elections in September.

The democrats called the outcome a symbolic protest vote against the tough new laws imposed by China, after more than 600,000 people cast their votes in the primary.
