China To Replace Hong Kong Leader Carrie Lam

2019-10-23 02:18:191 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

China is planning to replace Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam with an “interim” chief executive. If Chinese President Xi Jinping decided to go ahead, Lam's successor would be appointed by March. Reuters reports the successor would cover the remainder of Lam's term, which ends in 2022. Lam’s top successors include former head of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority Norman Chan. Also, Henry Tang, who has also served as the territory’s financial secretary and chief secretary for administration. Chinese officials want a stabilized situation before a final decision can be made on leadership changes. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets in Hong Kong since mid-June. They've objected to legislation that would extradiate Hong Kongers to mainland China for trial.
