Template talk:Hong Kong legislative election, 2008

classificationsEdit

Civic Act-up is basically Cyd Ho, and is a party with no formal structure. I propose that we should merge this back into independent pro-democrat. Also, to be consistent with prior election, if we are to keep LSD as a separate political grouping, it could be broken out in the {{Hong Kong legislative election, 2004}} template.

  • The classifications should be based on the organizations each member belonged to at the time of the election. For example, the Civic Party was not established until after the 2004 elections, so it would make more sense to rename that to the "Article 45 Concern Group", which was the group of Audrey Eu, Alan Leong, Ronny Tong and Magaret Ng. (Referring to the 2004 election template, that is) Long Hair and Co. were all independents by 2004, but they got together to form the LSD, so the LSD is included in this list.--Alasdair 08:01, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
Someone has gone and changed the template from 'pro-establishment camp' to 'pro-china camp'. Although the former may not be the best title, is certainly arguable whether the latter is better. I would say it is demonstrably worse, as I don't believe anybody has ever labelled the Liberal Party as pro China. Ohconfucius (talk) 03:09, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Several Liberal resignations happened after the election, so they don't change the election results (standard for every other country's article). I've reverted the Liberal number back to 7 and decreased the independent Beijingists accordingly. Kelvinc (talk) 18:49, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

ArithmeticEdit

The sub-totals and totals in the table do not appear to correspond to the figures above them. What is more, There appear to be some discrepancies between the totals on this table (1,515,479) and the total votes by constituencies (1,152,479). Ohconfucius (talk) 04:59, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
