The Civic Party's survival is now in question as more members are abandoning ship despite the party's insistence on continuing operations.
The party has been hit with a series of resignations since four former members were prosecuted for national security charges over their involvement in the pro-democracy camp's primaries, including Alvin Yeung Ngok-kiu, Kwok Ka-ki, Jeremy Tam Man-ho, and district councilor Lee Yue-shun. The four even made a public appeal for the party to be dissolved.
Kwun Tong district councilor William Li Wai-lam yesterday threw down his towel, saying he will continue his role as a district councilor and focus on the livelihood issues in Laguna City, but will quit the party.
Li won in the 2019 District Council election, beating incumbent Tang Wing-chun with 6,450 votes - the third-highest number of votes in the election.
Separately, another Kwun Tong DC member, Kinda Li Ka-tat, said yesterday that he has resigned from the district council.
He has been remanded in custody for his participation in the primaries and his office has already ceased operations.
