    Proposed university fee increases / Opening of the stock exchange on typhoon days

    On today's Backchat, we're talking about the government's plan to raise university tuition fees for Hong Kong students. The HK$42,000 yearly fees for local public universities have remained unchanged for 30 years and are lower than in most other developed places.

    So Secretary for Education Christine Choi said on a RTHK programme that it's time to consider raising fees, although she pledged any increase would be implemented in stages while offering more support to those in need.
    But grassroots groups still worry that any increase could affect underprivileged students. So how does the financing of Hong Kong's tertiary institutions compare to the rest of the world? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we find out more about plans to keep the Hong Kong Stock Exchange open during typhoons and severe rainstorms.

    2023 District Council election results / Fossilised pliosaur discovery

    主持人:Jim Gould and Car Ha

    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about the 2023 District Council election results.

    Hailed by Chief Executive John Lee as "high quality polls", this year's district council elections were the first to take place since the initiation of an overhaul in 2021 which reduced the number of directly elected seats from 452 to 88.
    The DAB party emerged as the main winner, having secured 109 of 264 seats available, including both directly and indirectly elected places. The Federation of Trade Unions came second, followed by the New People's Party and the Business and Professionals' Alliance.
    The remaining 101 seats were won by independent candidates and smaller parties.
    In Yau Tsim Mong district, three out of six candidates were from ethnic minority backgrounds, which was hailed as a demonstration of Hong Kong's multiculturalism. However, none was successful in the poll.
    After 9:45, we learn about the recent discovery on the south coast of England of a fossilised pliosaur -- a giant maritime predator that lived about 150 million years ago.

    9:05am-9:45am: 2023 District Council election results

    9:05am-9:15am: Christine Fong, Sai Kung District Councillor
    9:05-9:45am: Alan Lung, Co-convenor (International), Path of Democracy
