Hong Kong legislators have rejected controversial proposals to change the way the territory chooses its leader, with a dramatic end to the debate on the reforms. Julian Liu is in Hong Kong. “When Hong Kong government officials gave their final speeches, it was hours ahead of schedule. Journalists scrambled to retake their seats in the main chamber of the legislative council. Then a bell rang reminding legislators to gather. The Cabinets Room echoed with tension. A voice called out asking to halt the proceedings with just minutes to spare. The Head of the Council declined. Pro-government lawmakers walked out in protest. As a result, the controversial political reform plan failed by a wide margin.”

香港立法者否决选举行政长官变革这一富有争议性的提议,这为改革的争论画上戏剧性的结尾。朱利安 刘 香港报道。“香港政府官员发表最后演说。这比计划提前数小时。在立法委员的主厅中,记者们重新坐回自己的位子。随后铃响了,提醒立法者聚集到一起。内阁室内充满着紧张的气氛。有人提出要暂停程序几分钟。委员会领导人拒绝。支持政府的立法者从抗议中撤离。最后,这一富有争议性的政府变革计划以压倒性的结果失败。”
