With the changes in the election system for the Legislative Council and District Councils, a number of political groups and parties have reviewed their policies to adapt to the new electoral system, among which the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Development of Hong Kong, the largest political party, set up a reform team at the beginning of the year to study the future positioning.

The DAB used to hold an executive committee election in April, but the party had earlier informed its members that the voting date for the executive committee re-election would be postponed from the usual April to July 4 to 4 July. However, the latest development is due to the announcement of the reform study in mid-September, so the re-election of the Executive Committee has been postponed for another two months.

It is reported that the number of the new DAB Executive Committee is 57, while the Supervisory Committee is 43. In view of the upgrade of the Youth DAB and the Business Professional Committee, it means that young people and people with business backgrounds will have a seat on the new Executive Committee. The party has introduced reform measures, and some party members say that they are constantly reviewed every year.

The key points of reform include strengthening the training of Party members

Some party members explained that the election was postponed again, because considering the summary of the reform group within the party, the macro-level DAB will be expanded from being based on the grassroots and facing the middle class, to facing the business community and striving to become a governance political party, playing a red team role for the Hong Kong government's policy.

It was also pointed out that the direction of reform includes more training opportunities, such as more symposiums and inviting speakers from all walks of life. Training is required for members of the Legislative Council down to district staff. He added that the earlier regional governance study course was one of them, and everyone in the party needed to strengthen their own capabilities.

For example, Li Huiqiong gave up her re-election as chairman, Chen Keqin, or took over the baton

When the Executive Committee completes the re-election, a new leadership of DAB will be elected. The fate of Li Huiqiong, the current party chairwoman who has been promoted to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, has also attracted attention. There are views in the party that if Li abandons his re-election, one of the current vice chairmen, Chen Keqinbao, is very vocal. As the convenor of the caucus, Chan is acknowledged, and it is understood that Chan Heng-pong and Ho Chun-yin have provided assistance, and if Chan smoothly takes over as chairman, it is unknown whether the current work arrangement may bring inspiration to the new convener of the caucus.

In addition, the vacancy of Deputy Chairman left by Cheung Kwok-kwan's entry into the "Hot Kitchen" as Deputy Secretary for Justice will also be filled in this re-election, and it is reported that Ge Peifan's call is extremely high.
