Ousted pro-democracy lawmaker Dennis Kwok has officially withdrawn from the Civic Party after he surfaced in Canada last week. The barrister announced his decision on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

“Thank you for the care and commiseration from friends over the past few days. I, Dennis Kwok, have already formally applied to resign from the Civic Party,” his statement read.

Kwok, who had co-founded the party, confirmed his move to Canada with his family to Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail last Thursday. The paper reported that the former lawmaker planned to regain his Canadian citizenship after he had renounced it to become the legislative representative for the legal sector in 2012.
