Hong Kong Chief Executive, Carrie Lam said she became the source of ‘unforgivable turmoil’ after triggering a political crisis in the financial city and would resign if elected.

Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-Ngor is a senior most politician serving as the 4th Chief Executive of Hong Kong since 2017.

In a closed-door meeting with a group of businessmen last week, the chief executive of Hong Kong Carrie Lam said she was given a very limited option to resolve the crisis in the region.

This is because it is increasingly an issue of national security and sovereignty for China under pressure from the United States.

“If I’m given the choice, the first thing I will do is resign”, Carrie Lam said.

Lam’s dramatic statement indirectly provided a clear picture of the Chinese leader’s thinking in handling the unrest in Hong Kong, the biggest political crisis following the 1989 Tiananmen Battlefield.

Due to infectious protests, Lam suspended the implementation of the Extradition Bill that was attempted to be introduced on June 15.

On July 9, following the cancellation, Lam still failed to silence protesters demanding an investigation into police violence and democratic reform.

“For a Chief Executive to cause such a huge uproar in Hong Kong, it is something that cannot be forgiven”, she said.

Lam said the leaders in Beijing were aware of the negative impact on China’s reputation if they sent troops to Hong Kong to calm the situation.

But China is willing to do anything to end the upheaval, even if it means that Hong Kong will be economically affected, including a drop in tourism and a loss of potential investors.
