Hong Kong driver Carrie Lam (64) passes for a second term

Carrie Lam is not a candidate for another term in May. In May, the city state’s pro-Beijing political elite will elect a new governor.

“I will end my five-year term as prime minister on June 30 and officially end my 42-year career in government,” Lam announced Monday morning. She had already notified the authorities in Beijing of her choice in March 2021.

He chose Lam for “family reasons”. “I have to put my family first. They think it’s time to go home.”


After serving as a government employee, Lam became the first woman to govern Hong Kong in 2017. She had an eventful mandate. After mass protests in 2019, the Chinese central government tightly controlled the city. Hong Kong then strictly isolated itself from the rest of the world for two years to protect itself from Covid-19. With the arrival of the omikron variant, the healthcare system has become completely overburdened.

In Hong Kong, a committee of 1,500 loyalists to the Chinese regime elects the new head of government. Pro-democracy protesters wanted to change that, but they have since been silenced.
