Life goes on in Hong Kong after the conclusion of a bitter election for new Chief Executive. Leung Chun-ying or Leung CY was elected by the 1,200-member Electoral Committee over Henry Tang and Albert Ho in a campaign marked scandals, dirty tactics and smears. The city also had some protests against the Electoral Committee, saying every resident should get to vote (of course). Then last week there was the arrest of two billionaire brothers Thomas and Robert Kwok who run Hong Kong’s top property developer in a high-profile corruption probe. They proclaimed their innocence at a news conference yesterday, and were released on bail.
The pictures are all from Monday night.
