    Pan-democratic primaries

    On Tuesday' Backchat we'll be talking about the pan-democratic primaries at the weekend.

    Many were surprised by the high turnout of voters after the Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland
    Affairs said the exercise might be illegal, and a breach of the National Security Law.

    Professor Benny Tai, the primaries organiser, said the camp could win 45 out of 70 seats in September's Legco elections, claiming he is seeing a trend of many pro-establishment supporters
    turning "yellow" after the new security law was enacted.

    Do you agree? Is the split between localists and traditional democrats getting wider? Who will actually
    be chosen, and what are their chances of actually standing?
    Au Nok-hin, former lawmaker. Mr Au also coordinated the primaries
    Benson Wong, political analyst

    Ventus Lau, pro-democracy activist and also a candidate in the primaries.
    Audrey Eu, former Civic Party lawmaker

    National Security Law legislation

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Andrew Work

    On Tuesday's Backchat, latest developments on the National Security Law legislation on Hong Kong.
    The Hong Kong Bar Association issued a statement on Monday, expressing its concern regarding the plans as it believes Beijing has no power under the Basic Law to insert the legislation into Annex III as intended.
    Meanwhile, speaking at a meeting with senior media executives on Monday, former Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa said the purpose of the National Security Law is to assure social stability in Hong Kong. The absence of Article 23 of the Basic Law has made Hong Kong a national security loophole for "opposition forces" to disrupt social order.
    Will the National Security law bring stability or instability to Hong Kong?
