New Prospect for Hong Kong (Chinese: 香港新方向) is a political group established in October 2019 consisting mainly of mainland Chinese living in Hong Kong, dubbed "gang piao" in Mandarin.[1]

Background[edit]

The party was initially formed in October 2019 during the 2019-2020 Hong Kong protests. Its co-founder Gary Zhang was a manager at the Prince Edward station during the Prince Edward station attack on 31 August 2019 and had said that "Hongkongers are not rioters". The other co-founders included lawyer Paul Wang from Haldanes, and Marco Liu, founder of the PR company Hong Kong Asia Cultural Dissemination.[1][2]

In the 2021 Legislative Council election, Gary Zhang ran in the New Territories North, receiving nominations from HKU professor Yuen Kwok-yung, former HKEx CEO Charles Li, Cheung Kong Holdings managing director Justin Chiu and MTR CEO Jacob Kam.[2]
