    If things can be stabilise, Beijing will continue with Carrie Lam.

    I would prefer John Tsang Chun-wah, he is a moderate and most people in HK believe in him, but i don't think he would be chosen.

    Let's hope it's not Junius Ho, he has traid links and he will ensure hk end up like mogadishu , he is also racist as well (recent comments about Ms Mo).

    Henry Tang, not sure, but i presume he will be more compentent than Ms Lam, she should be in the streets every time there is a serious incident, not hiding in offices and disappearing for days on end, note how she visits the iman and mosque after sunday incident which means she finally knows have to calm the situation but that's 4 months too late, from the very start she should make daily press reports and visiting the streets and meeting people to possibly relieve the tension and distrust, but it's too late now

    Any replacement of Lam may only provide short-term relief as the fundamental problem is not who should be the CE, but the institutional and systemic problem with governance of HK.

    In short, unless Beijing honours its commitment to HK autonomy and allow eventual democracy, the problem will remain. Because under the current system, local officials are only interested in currying favours from Beijing rather than explain the HK situation to them:

    John Tsang is very popular among the local population. But CY Leung doesn't like him; so I don't think he has any chances.

    If Beijing does indeed select John Tsang, Hong Kong will return to normalcy.

    Fat chance Beijing will accept John Tsang. Anyone who enjoys broad popular support is automatically ruled out by Beijing.

    Getting rid of Carrie Lam doesn't make any difference in the way it governs, that is what I think and also what I hear some people said too. At the same time, I believe Beijing think the same replacing Carrie would not stops the protest.

    Beijing likes Carrie, the only reason they discontinue her would be that she doesn't want to continue. It shows in some of her latest public events, she has became less engage.

    Beijing had a perfect opportunity to "step up" and grant the public the opportunity to vote for their next CEO in a special election. Unfortunately, that doesn't appear like it will happen.
