Op-ed: Hong Kong poll set for relaunch, but users should take heed

(Feb 23, 2017) Just because the Citizens United in Action-led mock Hong Kong chief executive ballot will go live once more doesn't mean users shouldn't participate with caution, Alex Lo writes in an op-ed for the South China Morning Post.
