Hong Kong's Carrie Lam resigns in June
Hong Kong is facing a change of leadership. Incumbent Chief Executive Carrie Lam has announced that she will not run for a second term in the May 8 election. This means the 64-year-old will retire after 42 years of government service at the end of June. The Chinese government had already been informed in advance of her decision, which Lam stated was due to family reasons. Beijing reacted with understanding and respected her decision.
