Hong Kong’s new electoral reform proposal revealed

On Wednesday, Hong Kong's pro-Beijing government unveiled an election reform proposal for electing the city’s next Chief Executive. The proposal, allows the 5 million eligible voters in Hong Kong to choose from a panel of three candidates in the 2017 poll.However, the three candidates will be pre-selected out of 10 possible candidates by a 1,200-member electoral body comprised of pro-Beijing tycoons and other elites, using a secret ballot. The panel would reflect the current election committee, which up until now has chosen the city's leader.
