Central authorities in charge of Hong Kong affairs voiced strong condemnation over the stabbing of a Hong Kong lawmaker, calling it a violent attempt to influence elections.

The remark came after a man stabbed Junius Ho Kwan-yiu, a member of the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, on Wednesday. Two of Ho's colleagues were also injured during the incident.

Ho was canvassing votes for the district council elections slated for Nov 24. In addition to Ho, two other candidates - Lo Chun-yu and Chiang Ching-man - are also running for district councilor of Lok Tsui, Tuen Mun.
