Should Carrie Lam resign?

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam apologised to the people on Sunday as an estimated 1 million-plus black-clad protesters insisted that she resign over her handling of a bill that would allow citizens to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Organisers said almost 2 million turned out on Sunday to demand that chief executive Lam step down in what is becoming the most significant challenge to China’s relationship with the territory since it was handed back by Britain 22 years ago.

Sunday's demonstration came in spite of Lam indefinitely delaying - though not withdrawing - the bill on Saturday in a dramatic climbdown that threw into question her ability to continue to lead the city.

On Sunday, she apologised for the way the government had handled the draft law, which had been scheduled for debate last Wednesday, but gave no further insight into its fate.

    Yes as she is just a puppet of the Chinese government.

    Carrie Lam should resign. She has no democratic mandate. She has completely misjudged the political landscape. Beijing is legal bound to honour the joint declaration. Otherwise China should face sanctions just like Iran.

    No. The protesters should accept that their colonial legacy is over, forget political agitation and just get on with making money.

    She should but I'm not sure she could. She gets her orders from those weak greedy commie scumbags in Beijing.

    I no longer care what happens to them, the HongKong people are not at all nice and deserve EVERYTHING they get. Send in the tanks.

    Xi would never allow that to happen

    If Carrie Lam resigns, Beijing is likely to send in the tanks and infantry like they did in Tiananmen Square.
