Hong Kong chief executive will not seek re-election in March 2017

Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying will not seek re-election in March 2017, the South China Morning Post reported Dec. 9, citing family reasons for the surprise announcement.

The Hong Kong chief executive added that his decision was not due to a lack of support from China's central government.

Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah and lawmaker Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee are seen as strong contenders to replace Leung.
