Beijing on Monday (Dec 20) responded to the low voter turnout rate of Hong Kong’s legislative council election, saying that it is within a "normal and reasonable range".

The Chinese government said the impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the interference and sabotage by anti-China forces in Hong Kong were the reasons for the low turnout.
