Hong Kong gov’t moves quickly to implement political changes ordered by Beijing

by admin

Hong Kong’s government is moving quickly to implement sweeping changes ordered by Beijing to the city’s political system, with a bill set to be presented to the local legislature next week.

Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang told legislators on Thursday the government plans to submit the bill to the Legislative Council (LegCo) in mid-April, and aims to have it passed by the end of next month.
