So far, pro-democracy candidates have won 269 out of 452 seats in 18 district council races,

while pro-Beijing forces, who previously held 73 percent of the seats, have only won 30.

Voters came out in droves -- with a 71 percent turnout -- up from 47 percent four years ago in the same elections, according to the Electoral Affairs Commission.

"This is political annihilation for Beijing and it's going to have consequences that are going to reverberate not just in Hong Kong itself, but perhaps in China as well," Asia analyst and foreign affairs journalist Gordon Chang said on Fox News' "America's News HQ" Sunday.

Pro-Beijing leaders said they hoped the violence would detract from the democracy cause but voting remained peaceful amid tight security at the ballot boxes and long wrap-around lines at polling stations.

I suppose they will be calling on the Iron Chink to get there fast to put things back in "their proper place" :wink:


EDIT:
And Gateway reported it all as "HUGE ELECTION NEWS FROM HONG KONG! Freedom Candidates Win 9 of 10 Seats from Pro-Beijing Boot{y}lickers" :ohmy:

In Hong Kong their college students protest for freedom and democracy. In the US, our students protest for socialism and repeal of the 1st amendment for views they don't "agree" with. What a stunning comparison.
