Another clash explodes in Hong Kong’s parliament

MPs from the pro-Chinese party and members of the pro-democratic party clashed in the Hong Kong parliament on Monday. The two camps disagree about the appointment of a committee chairman to discuss new bills.

The pro-Chinese party accuses the pro-democratic party of trying to “slow down” new legislation in a “malicious way”. Among other things, the committee would like to vote on criminalizing the abuse of the Chinese national anthem. A vote on the controversial bill has now been postponed to probably May 27.

Images show that pro-democracy MPs must be carried out of parliament by security guards. It is the second time this month that the issue is scuffling in parliament.
