The CCP is continuing to erode Hong Kong’s autonomy and taking down anyone that opposes the Party. Beijing intends to oust at least four pro-democracy law makers from Hong Kong’s democratically elected legislature this week because they are “not suitable”.
Hong Kong’s pro-democracy politicians said they would quit en masse if Beijing moves to disqualify any individual members of the Legislative Council.
The threat to resign comes after a report Monday from HK01 that said China’s National People’s Congress Standing Committee was expected to consider disqualifying at least four opposition members from the legislature as it begins a two-day meeting on Tuesday. The gatherings were likely to result in the disqualification of Dennis Kwok, Kwok Ka-ki, Kenneth Leung and Alvin Yeung, the news site said, leaving the 70-seat Legislative Council with just 16 opposition lawmakers.
