Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam invoked emergency powers to delay the Legislative Council elections by one year, to September 5, 2021, citing health risks from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Lam also revealed that China’s top legislative body will make a decision on how to fill the year-long gap without a new election.

I thought Joshua Wong would be glad to see his idol, Emperor Trump's strategy of delaying elections put into action. Why is he crying?

No need to vote as the government will find a way of disqualifying the pan dems. I would suggest that everyone gets out of Hong Kong once this virus subsides. CCP and China cannot be trusted anymore

We have all seen how Hong Kong (China) was petrol bombed, torched, wrecked by criminal thugs. Can we say the earlier elections were a fair assessment of the people of Hong Kong (China) when they were threatened, intimidated, bullied DO AS WE TELL YOU or else, else being getting beaten up, your livelihoods torched NEED I say more? If things were dire enough the disturbing rise in the number of Covid 19 cases is enough to raise serious concerns re the health and well being physically and mentally after what those criminals put the hard working law abiding citizens of Hong Kong (China) through the last thing they need is being forced again to vote for criminal elements funded by the foreigners intent on perverting the truth who we know have caused so much trouble in aiding and abetting those such as Joshua Wong, Agnes Chow and so many other insurrectionists. What we need to see is Hong Kong (China) getting stabilised and to see those criminals duly tried and punished which will bring a sense of euphoria for some at knowing that they finally get the punishment and Hong Kongers (China) can see justice finally prevail. .

特朗普真是chun,还需要推迟,一点不像我们,直接修改xian法,无限联任就行,全票通过。我们中国人真是太聪明了。

共产党万岁爱党就是爱国 says:

我们国家真是太牛逼了,反对军队国家化,支持户籍制和双轨制!支持用全体纳税人的钱养党卫军,支持让普通百姓去打仗,为赵家人谋取利益,支持北京北河北人有约!支持体制内铁饭碗,反对劳动法,爱国就是爱党,中国共产党万岁!

As expected. China is allergic to freedom, democracy and elections.

벚꽃 says:

A year is too long. About a month is appropriate.

The Global Special says:

Well, better have communist government for 1 more year than die of Covid 19
