Hong Kong Localism Power (Chinese: 香港本土力量) is a localist political organisation founded in 2015. It is currently headed by Jonathan Ho Chi-kwong.

In the 2016 Hong Kong Legislative Council election, Ho formed a joint ticket with Democratic Progressive Party of Hong Kong chairman Yeung Ke-cheong. Yeung's candidacy was disqualified by the Electoral Affairs Commission as he did not sign both the original and additional confirmation forms to pledge to uphold the Hong Kong Basic Law.[1] Ho led a ticket on his own and ran a negative propaganda against Wong Yuk-man which led to the downfall of Wong, who failed to retain his seat by a margin of 424 votes. Ho himself received 399 votes.
