CHINA LIMITS HONG KONG PARLIAMENT TO PATRIOTS
Written by wave FM on March 30, 2021
China has passed several changes to Hong Kong’s electoral rules which will tighten its control over the city, state media has said.
The aim of the reforms is to ensure that only “patriotic” figures can run for positions of power.
The changes mean that prospective MPs will first be vetted for their loyalty to the mainland.
Critics warn it will mean the end of democracy, as it removes all opposition from the city parliament.
