Hong Kong elections seen as win for pro-democracy candidates after massive turnout
So far, pro-democracy candidates have won 269 out of 452 seats in 18 district council races, while pro-Beijing forces, who previously held 73 percent of the seats, have only won 30. Voters came out in droves — with a 71 percent turnout — up from 47 percent four years ago in the same elections, according to the Electoral Affairs Commission.
And…….., does that mean the Chinese government is going to take the results laying down?? They just may call the Judo Guy and rent a few 100 of his poison umbrella guys to Hong Kong to thin out the victors.
In the long run, I think Hong Kong will eventually become fully democratic, but at this point in time, I don’t think that XI is going to take these results without resistance.
