Hong Kong: Pro-Beijing cabinet member heckled by opposition

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
noviembre 25, 2019 at 08:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

Member of the Executive Council of Hong Kong and chairperson of the New People's Party Regina Ip was heckled by opposition protesters in central Hong Kong on Monday before being escorted by riot police to a taxi.

Footage shows hundreds of protesters with raised hands holding posters and booing the pro-Beijing lawmaker, while she was making her way to the car.

On Sunday night and the early hours of Monday, pro-democracy candidates won a stunning victory in community-level elections, capturing 389 of 452 elected seats. Hong Kong's 18 districts have long been dominated by pro-government councillors, who used to hold over 300 seats.

A record 4.13 million people had registered to vote - more than half the Special Administrative Region's population - and 2.94 million people went to the polls. Turnout was over 71 per cent, versus a mere 47 per cent in the 2015 election.
