Dear fellow Election Committee Member,
Hello! I am Elizabeth Quat, a candidate running for a seat in the Election Committee constituency of Legislative Council.
I was elected District Councillor in 2007 and have become a member of the Legislative Council since 2012. We have witnessed aberrant and turbulent politicnl environment over the lnst 14 ycurs. Fncing senseless filibusters, violence, and even death threats, my resolve to honourably serve Hong Kong remained undeterred.
I come from the innovation and technology industry and have been continuously advocating the development of Hong Kong as a Smart City. Security, sustainability, environmental protection, women's affairs, healthcare, and matters concerning the livelihood of the people of Hong Kong are all subjects of my long term pursuit. A good number of my proposed policy initiatives such as the establishment of the Innovation and Technology Bureau, legislations to combat "doxxing", upskirt photography, smuggling of endangered species, "bogus refugees", along with the reform of Radio Television Hong Kong and the judicial system were all adopted by the government. These results speak for themselves.
This year I have decided to run for the Election Committee constituency of the Legislative Council. If elected I can better focus on policy research and the advocacy of policy initiatives, working closer than ever before with all sectors of our society to promote reform and changes to improve people's livelihood.
For our country, for Hong Kong, I am fully committed to give my all from whatever position I am in, promising to reflect true public opinion of the people and courageously speaking out for injustice.
I sincerely call for your vote for me to return to the Legislative Council.
Thank you for your very kind consideration.

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

Invest in people's livelihood and support disadvantaged groups
