Election subsidies have also attracted much attention from all walks of life. The answer was announced. A total of 55 people were eligible to receive them. There were also 13 unsuccessful candidates in 4 constituencies who were excluded because the number of votes did not reach the threshold.

A subsidy of 30 yuan per vote must be received for more than 1/2 of the minimum electoral votes in the constituency.
