HK leader should resign: Mahathir

  • Mahathir says Hong Kong's embattled chief executive Carrie Lam should resign in view of the ongoing anti-China protests in the territory.

PETALING JAYA, Oct 4 (Sin Chew Daily) -- Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Hong Kong's embattled chief executive Carrie Lam should resign in view of the ongoing anti-China protests in the territory.

He said in a press conference that Lam was putting herself in a dilemma, as she had to listen to Beijing and face her own conscience which told her Hong Kongers were against the extradition bill, even though she knew the consequences of vetoing it.

Mahathir also said he worried China would take “stern action” against the protestors.

He felt that the best thing for the Hong Kong leader to do was to resign.
