The results of an unofficial opposition primary seen as a symbolic protest vote against the national security laws introduced by Beijing are expected to be announced shortly in Hong Kong, following a vote-count on Tuesday.
The vote is an unofficial primary in Hong Kong which will determine opposition leaders who will run for the legislature in September.
Sorting of the ballots was seen underway at a Public Opinion Research Institute (PORI) office on Tuesday.
Over the past weekend, some 610,000 Hong Kongers voted on the matter, according to opposition activists.
The procedure was denounced by Beijing as a «serious provocation» towards the existing electoral system.
