Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday the government expects to hold Legislative Council elections in December, more than a year after they were postponed due to the coronavirus.
Lam was speaking at a press conference after China finalised a sweeping overhaul of Hong Kong's electoral system, drastically curbing democratic representation in the city as authorities seek to ensure "patriots" rule the global financial hub.
