外文标题：Democracy would see poor people dominate vote: Hong Kong leader
HONG KONG: Hong Kong's Beijing-backed leader Leung Chun-ying told media that if the government met pro-democracy protesters' demands it would result in the city's poorer people dominating elections.
In an interview with foreign media, carried in the Wall Street Journal and International New York Times, the embattled chief executive reiterated his position that free elections were impossible.
China has offered Hong Kongers the chance to vote for their next leader in 2017. But only those vetted by a committee expected to be loyal to Beijing will be allowed to stand - something protesters have labelled as "fake democracy".
Leung said that if candidates were nominated by the public then the largest sector of society would likely dominate the electoral process.
When we first introduced adult franchise in democratic India, some elite felt that the poor would dominate the election process. Over six decades, we proved to the world that we heading towards a mature democracy. Unfortunately, China is a dictatorship and, therefore, democracy will not work there.
i know someone will translate this into chinese,hahaha
These guys don't know that that is the beauty of democracy! Everyone has a voice simply because they are human beings irrespective of whether they are rich or poor, more or less educated, female or male, etc because every human being has the right to the representation and fulfilment of his/ her needs and wants.

That IS democracy!
