HUGE ELECTION NEWS FROM HONG KONG! Freedom Candidates Win 9 of 10 Seats to Pro-Beijing Bootlickers

GREAT NEWS FROM HONG KONG!

Hong Kong’s opposition pro-democracy movement has made major gains in the Chinese territory’s district council elections, local media reports say.

Pro-independence candidates have 278 seats.

Pro-Beijing have 42 seats.

More than 2.9 million people voted, a turnout of more than 71 percent, against 47 percent in 2015.

The election was billed as a test of support for embattled Chief Executive Carrie Lam.

Pro-democracy protest groups wanted the vote to send a message to the Chinese government after five months of unrest and anti-government protests.

Pro-Beijing candidates had called on voters to support them in order to express frustration at the upheaval caused in recent months by continuous clashes between protesters and police.

A record 4.1m people had registered to vote, or more than half the population of 7.4m.

Hong Kong’s district councillors mainly deal with local issues such as bus routes and garbage collection, but do have some influence in choosing the city’s chief executive.

Casting her vote, Ms Lam promised to listen “more intensively” to the views of district councils.

  1. ……”Hong Kong’s district councillors mainly deal with local issues such as bus routes and garbage collection, but do have some influence in choosing the city’s chief executive.”…….

    Obviously their form of local government delivers more power & influence to councillors than ours!

  2. And Now the US has waded in (both pardies)
    China does not like this attention and interference.

    And remember Taiwan and the South China Sea
    The whole world needs to up the pressure on China to show them they cannot be soft bullies

    • Kea the Chinese just need to learn to be more subtle like our wonderful govt (praise be St Jacinda).

      Just look at the Labour sex camp perp and the outcome of the trial. Through protracted delay and a compliant media & an inhouse judge, the perp was discharged and found not guilty. There job done, total corruption of the system and not even a murmur from the sheeple & the media. With the example anything is possible, all St Jacinda needs to do is keep Winston in baubles and let him think he’s king.

  3. The Dragon is patient, but when annoyed can be extremely fast. and very ruthless! These kids / activists in HK don’t really understand what they are tangling with and will, I fear, have to learn the hard way. When the Dragon DOES react (and only after severe provocation), the Western Media will both abandon them and blame President Trump for giving them ‘hope’; a ‘hope’ that the MSM were only too happy to embroider and foster. I’d give the protests six months, at most, before Beijing calls ‘time’ and closes things down.
