    What I mean is more than 50% of the voting poualption choose to support the pan-democratic, not just the banana party.For those who didn’t vote, it’s their free will to be silent. But then they also fully acknowledge that their right will be represented by those who chose not to be silent.Quite funny about your representation theory, if that’s the real way to play with, think about the following:June 4th, 1989: 5m of Hong Kong people support the Tiananmen IncidentAugust 18th, 1967: the majority of Chinese citizens support the bourgeoisie1970-1976: majority of American citizens support the Vietnam WarOctober 17th, 2012: the majority of Hong Kong people support to completely remove the Moral and National Education (fact :p )
