Exchange of views with Hong Kong protest leader Joshua Wong

Parliament’s Human Rights Committee will host a debate via. video link with Joshua Wong, Secretary-General of the Demosisto Party and one of the leading figures of the Hong Kong protests. The ECR has congratulated the democracy movement on its overwhelming success in the recent district elections, where an unprecedented turnout of voters endorsed their programme. We urge the Chinese government in Beijing in accordance with the status of “one country, two systems” to fully respect the outcome of the elections and to respond positively to the clearly expressed views of the people of Hong Kong.
