Angela Leong On Kei has asked the Election Commission for a recount of votes from Sunday’s Legislative Assembly election.
Ms Leong, an executive director of SJM Holdings Ltd, said the results were “not fair” and she would “definitely appeal”.
Her ticket fell 16 votes short of securing a second directly elected seat, which would have gone to her running mate, Kent Wong Seng Hong, a consultant to Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd.
The high number of spoiled ballots should be looked into, Ms Leong said. There were 146,453 valid votes, 1,083 were blank and 4,345 spoiled.
