Beijing is “satisfied” with the work of Hong Kong’s leader Leung Chun-ying, according to Zhang Dejiang, China’s third highest level official who commented on the chief executive months before an election for the top job is to take place.
Zhang told dozens of Hong Kong officials “the central government is satisfied with the work of the chief executive and of the SAR government” and noted that President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang expressed “full endorsement” for Leung during his annual duty visit to the capital in December.
