Another step has been taken to merge Hong Kong


The senior official announced comprehensive electoral and administrative reforms in a speech Monday. He made it clear that there is no place in the leadership of a city with special administrative status for those who profess anti-China views or want to provoke chaos.

“Those who oppose the patriots are the destroyers of the principle of one country, two systems,” he said, stressing that such groups should not be allowed close to power. Xia said waves of anti-government protests in Hong Kong two years ago could also be whipped up because the “patriots rule Hong Kong” principle was not fully applied.

Xi underlined: those who violate national security law or oppose the power of the Chinese Communist Party are not patriots.

The “patriots rule Hong Kong” principle was originally formulated by former Chinese leader Teng Xiaoping before Hong Kong returned to mainland China in 1997 from British colonial rule. Last month, Chinese President Xin Qing-ping recalled this idea, calling it a precondition for a solution to the city’s deep-rooted problems in a video conversation with Hong Kong Governor Carrie Lam.
