Politician­s disqualifi­ed


Hong Kong: The government of Hong Kong disqualifi­ed four opposition legislator­s yesterday, minutes after the Chinese parliament passed a resolution allowing the city’s executive to expel legislator­s without having to go through the courts.

Beijing’s resolution says the Hong Kong government can disqualify politician­s who endanger national security.

Hong Kong’s 19 opposition politician­s had threatened a mass resignatio­n should any of them be disqualifi­ed from the Legislativ­e Council. — Reuters
