Public attitude toward political parties in Hong Kong is one of ambivalence and does not furnish a hospitable environment for their development. In their approach to political parties, the people of Hong Kong are not guided by modern democratic precepts or by the need to introduce political, social and economic changes. In fact, political parties are expected to serve primarily the expressive function of venting people's discontent and frustration, especially against the Chinese government. As construed in the mind of the public, political parties are essentially an additional component in a partially democratized political order playing mainly an oppositional but still a secondary role vis-a-vis the government-that-be in Hong Kong.
