All Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmakers are to resigned from the legislature after Beijing passed a resolution allowing the Hong Kong government to unseat four democrats with immediate effect.
Following Beijing’s resolution, the Hong Kong government announced that four incumbent lawmakers – Alvin Yeung, Kwok Ka-ki, Dennis Kwok and Kenneth Leung who were barred standing in the now-postponed LegCo election – were disqualified.
At a press conference, all democrats chanted “Hong Kong add oil. Together we stand” as they announced that they would hand in their notices on Thursday.
