Hong Kong’s election authority has confirmed May 8 as the date for the city’s leadership race, with the nomination period set to run from April 3 to 16.


The announcement, made through the government’s gazette on Friday, came a day after sources told the Post it was highly unlikely the chief executive race would be postponed again given the decline in the number of coronavirus infections in the city, as any further delay would cause more uncertainties Beijing did not want to see.


Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor on Friday remained coy when asked whether she would join the race or if Chief Secretary John Lee Ka-chiu or Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po would resign to run for the election.


Chinese state leader tells Hong Kong politicians to support local government in tackling problems, but is there a hidden message for city chief?

Vice-Premier Han Zheng also urges Hong Kong’s pro-establishment camp to help government further integrate city with the nation’s development plans.


A mainland Chinese state leader has urged Hong Kong’s pro-Beijing camp to support the local government in tackling deep-seated problems and boosting the economy, as well as in further integrating the city with the nation’s development plans.


Analysts and lawmakers said that while these were requirements for pro-establishment politicians, Vice-Premier Han Zheng, the state leader overseeing Hong Kong affairs, had also effectively updated Beijing’s expectations of the city’s leader.


Hong Kong is expected to hold a leadership poll on May 8, when an 1,463-strong Election Committee stacked with Beijing loyalists will elect a chief executive to take office on July 1 for the next five years.
