民主思路大合唱《一點燭光》谷選情

民主思路選情落後,望藉翻唱經典廣東歌谷選情吸溫和選民票。


主打中間路線的民主思路派出兩名成員,分別參加立法會選舉新界東和香港島地區直選,但兩人的支持度在滾動民調中一直排在較後位置。民主思路昨日發布翻唱上世紀八十年代組典廣東歌《一點燭光》的片段,希望藉此打動更多本來不願投票的選民現身投票。

長約2分鐘的片段中,召集人湯家驊、新界東候選人麥嘉晋、香港島候選人黃梓謙和一眾助選成員合唱歌曲,身為結他好手的湯家驊亦親自彈結他伴奏,並配上獨白。湯家驊又稱,前後花了超過1.6萬港元購入歌曲其中2分鐘(原本長約4分鐘)的公共廣播權。

湯家驊透露,原本的想法是想翻唱由羅文原唱的《幾許風雨》,及後亦嘗試過查詢盧冠廷《陪着你走》的版權,但由於有版權持有人不想介入政治,加上版權價錢昂貴,最終選擇了關正傑原唱的《一點燭光》。他表示,《一點燭光》老幼咸宜,容易同時打動各個年紀的選民。

麥嘉晋和黃梓謙的選情暫時未如理想,他們二人和湯家驊均承認選情嚴峻,但有信心未來數周會有改善,並笑言「現時民調處於低位,即是未來會上升」。三人表明不支持港獨,但認為選舉管理委員會的確認書和禁止港獨人士參選的風波,影響了選舉的公信力,令社會更撕裂。

三人也異口同聲表明不支持行政長官梁振英連任,但沒有透露心水的行政長官候選人。三人明言,下任行政長官候選人必須符合四大條件:有決心重啟政改,實現雙普選;本身已獲廣泛支持;有誠信;用人唯才。
