Benny Tai speaks:

我哋又創造咗令一次嘅奇跡
We have created yet another miracle

喺今次民主派嘅初選嘅公民投票
In this public ballot [for] primary elections [for] the democratic camp
+ 初選 cho1 syun2 = primary election

按而家系統,電子系統,所統計到嘅投票嘅人次呢
According to the current system, the electronic system, statistics for the number of people voting

係592,211位
Stands at 592,211

另外呢,我哋仲有係大概21,000張呢,係紙嘅選票嘅
In addition, we also have roughly 21,000 paper ballots
+ 選票 syun2 piu3 = a vote

合理啲呢,去推算呀
Making reasonable calculations on the basis of [these figures]

係有好大機會呢,今次嘅由民間所進行嘅一次嘅投票啦
There is quite a big chance (?), [that] this vote conducted by the people
+ 由 yauh4 = indicates the subject of the verb進行 jeun3 hahng4 = to carry out | + 民間 mahn4 gaan1 = of the people (as opposed to the government or some official agency)

係超過60萬
In excess of 600,000 [people voted in this ballot]

因爲點票嘅時間會比較長
Because it takes rather a long time to count the votes
+ 點票 dim2 piu3 = to count votes

因爲都有21,000張嘅紙張票
[And] because there are also [都] 21,000 paper ballots

但我哋估計呢,個個嘅投票嘅結果呢 We estimate, however, that the result of all the votes

最快都要聽日(13日)嘅黃昏時段都先至可以出得到嘅
At the quickest, it will take until dusk tomorrow (13 July) before [the result] comes out

Reporter speaks:

《香港大學民意研究計劃》嘅總監鍾庭耀話
Robert Chung Ting Yiu, the Director of the Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute at Hong Kong University, said
+ 民意 mahn4 yi3 = public opinion | + 總監 jung2 gaam1 = director

紙張點票即將展開
That the counting of the paper votes was about to get underway
+ 即將 jik1 jeung1 = about to (indicates a near future occurrence) | + 展開 jin2 hoi1 = to open up; to launch

點票完成之後
[And] when the counting was complete

會連同電子投票結果一同公佈
The result combined with the electronic voting result (?) would be announced

Benny Tai speaks again:

我相信每一個參選人
I believe that every single candidate

按返喺之前協調嘅時候嘅協議,係會按返個協議遵守承諾
Will keep their promise [in line with] the agreement we had, the agreement made before, when we were co-ordinating [this ballot]
+ 協調 hip3 tiuh4 = harmonious; to coordinate | + 協議 hip3 yih5 = to negotiate; an agreement

係去作出參與或者唔參與官方選舉嘅決定
And make a decision to take part or not in the official election

我哋係根據嗰兩三日呢,公佈結果之後呢
On the basis of these two, three days, we will announce the results and afterwards

有一啲區呢,一定要進一步進行協調嘅喇
Some districts will have to do a bit more in the way of co-ordination

包括咗香港島同埋九龍西
Including Hong Kong Island and Kowloon West

而有任何參選團隊係唔理呢一個之前嘅協議
[Now] if any groups taking part in the election choose to ignore [唔理] this previous agreement

然後繼續去參選呢
And later go on to contest the election

啊我相信佢係必然係會受到各方責難嘅
It is my belief that they will receive censure from various quarters
+ 責難 jaak3 naahn4 = blame; censure

噉如果佢自己要去啊面對緊嗰個嘅後果呢
If they want to confront those consequences [of their actions]

即使佢可能保住佢自己所謂嘅基本盤都好呢
Although they may be able to hold on to their own voter bases [基本盤]
+ 即使 jik1 si2 = although; even though | + 基本盤 gei1 bun2 pun4*2 = base; people who are committed to voting for you

其實呢,就,佢能夠當選嘅機會我相信都係好細嘅
Actually, there is only a slight chance in my view that such people will be elected

呢對眼鏡呢,我諗都碎咗唔知几多次嘅呢,吓
I think these spectacles of mine have been broken a fair number of times already

啫由我喺前幾日講到我哋嘅投票
From what I said in the past few days about our elections

可能只係得170,000 仲驚不夠數嘅時候
Possibly only getting [a turn out] of 170,000, I was still afraid then that the numbers wouldn’t be enough (?)

各方多努力啦,吓
So everyone needs to keep making an effort

今次有600,000嘅市民係參與咗呢個初選嘅投票
This time 600,000 [Hong Kong] citizens have participated in these primary elections

去到9月6號嘅時候
When 6 September comes around

應該係比呢一個數字更多更多嘅香港市民
The number of Hong Kong citizens ought to be many, many more than this

係會好聰明哋呢,係去識得點樣去將佢嘅選票運用
And wisely they will understand how to make use of their vote
+ 運用 wahn6 yuhng6 = to utilize

使到民主派嘅候選人能夠贏取到最多嘅議席
Enabling candidates belonging to the democratic camp to win the greatest number of seats
+ 候選人 hauh6 syun2 yahn4 = candidate | + 贏取 yehng4 cheui2 = to win | + 議席 yih5 jihk6 = a seat in LegCo

達到到35+呢個目標
And reach the objective of 35+
