Published

Hong Kong opposition lawmakers, seen as representatives of moderate pro-democracy voices in the Chinese-ruled finance hub, are expected to formally tender their resignation on Thursday in protest against the dismissal of four of their colleagues.

Their dramatic departure will remove a key avenue for dissent in Hong Kong, where Beijing’s move to introduce national security legislation on June 30 and Covid-19 restrictions have quashed the pro-democracy protests which started last year.
