Hong Kong’s pro-democracy camp has coasted to a landslide majority in the city’s district elections on Nov. 24, indicating a groundswell of support for the ongoing protest movement against the Chinese regime’s encroachment.

The election has widely been seen as a referendum on the pro-democracy protests that have rocked the city for almost six months.
