HONG KONG, March 26 (Reuters) - Former senior Hong Kong
government official Carrie Lam has been elected as the city's
next leader by a 1,200-election committee stacked with Beijing
loyalists, the Electoral Affairs Commission said on Sunday.
Most of Hong Kong's 7.3 million voters have no say in the
choice of leader in the former British colony that returned to
Chinese rule in 1997, at a time when tensions with Beijing have
been on the rise.
