Chan Hoi Wing, Joseph
Member, Central Committee, DAB
President, Hong Kong Youth Association
Vice Chairman, The Hong Kong Island Federation
Dear fellow Election Committee Member,
Hello! I am Joseph Chan. After graduating from the University of Hong Kong, I joined the DAB, devoted myself to community service, and strived to help grassroots residents with their livelihood issues.
As a young politician, I have given lessons to impoverished children, helped single mothers run errands, and shed tears for the elderly who live alone. These experiences enhanced my determination and made me look forward to help people at the grassroots level and especially for young people.
In 2019, there were violent riots in Hong Kong. At the same year, I participated in the District Council election. I was so shocked to discover that young friends around me harboured serious misunderstandings and prejudices about politics, the rule of law, and the country. I witnessed their violence and anger, and it made me feel that youth education needed an overhaul. Hence, I became the President of Hong Kong Youth Association and was elected as one of the 1,500 election committee members and became even more determined to devote energy to serving the youth.
I hope to utilize my experience in youth work to serve Hong Kong from a position where I can exercise influence on legislation, policy, and the institution. Therefore, I declare my intention to run for the Legislative Council election to speak up for grassroots youth and lead them to build Hong Kong and integrate into the nation's development.
Chan Hoi Wing, Joseph
fully support Joseph Chan

To promote Hong Kong's reform and change, the DAB believes it is imperative to defend the hard-won stability. It would help improve governance efficiency and allow the government to focus on solving the population's most pressing concerns, such as housing, helping the underprivileged, and medical issues. By responding to people's most urgent needs, the government can blaze a new economic trail and help the youth spread their wings to accelerate long-term development. And by improving transportation, making the city greener and solving community problems, the government can create a more liveable city. As such, the DAB submits the following proposals and requests:
Establish a national identity, safeguard stability and security
Pass on Chinese culture, deepen understanding of the country, improve the legal framework, and ensure the safety and stability of the nation and Hong Kong
