Thomas Crampton and Keith Bradsher: Hong Kong successor to serve just 2 years, Tsang says

From The International Herald Tribune:

Hong Kong’s new leader said on Monday that the government here was determined to shorten the next chief executive’s term to just two years, even as pro-democracy lawmakers voiced strong opposition, saying the proposal contravened the Basic Law, Hong Kong’s mini-constitution.

Donald Tsang, who became Hong Kong’s acting chief executive Saturday, promised a more democratic future for the city, however.
