    On Monday's Backchat: Voting for the Election Committee; and career opportunities in the mainland.

    Nearly 90% of about 4,900 eligible voter have cast their ballots in the Election Committee subsector elections held yesterday. They were deciding on 364 seats in the 13 of 40 subsectors which were being contested.

    The voting was taking place under a new electoral system following the Central Government’s  overhaul, designed to ensure that only those regarded as patriots can be in positions of authority. The 1,500-member Election Committee is made up of five big sectors, with 40 subsectors that include representatives from businesses, professional bodies, labour and religious groups, as well as national legislators and groups that have ties to the central authorities.

    It was a very different looking exercise from previous occasions, with the number of individual voters greatly reduced, and largely replaced by corporate votes. We’ll be taking a close look at the changed political landscape.

    Meanwhile the head of the Electoral Affairs Commission has apologized a delay in the announcement of the full results, saying it appeared there’d been problems with ballot verification papers.

    After 9:15am, we’re looking at career opportunities in the mainland, with the All-China Youth Federation announcing 40,000 jobs and internships to young people from Hong Kong in the next five years.

    Resuming local tourism

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Anna Fenton

    On today’s Backchat: As Hong Kong takes its first tentative step towards resuming tourism, we’ll be asking if the government decision to allow local tour groups of up to 30 people from today is enough to save Hong Kong’s travel industry from collapse?

    The local tour groups will be subject to all kinds of restrictions, with tour guides required to take mandatory COVID-19 tests and all participants required to wear identifying labels at all times.

    So would you consider signing up for a local tour under these rules? Would it feel strange to travel around Hong Kong with a guide? And what kind of local tours are most likely to be successful?
