Beijing has voiced ‘truth and support’ over Hong Kong administrator’s actions to oust democratic activist Joshua Wong from participating in local elections after months of protests in the city.

Wong is a well-known figure in the pro-democracy movement without a chairman, accusing the Hong Kong government of ‘political censorship’, after election officials declared his candidacy for the November election invalid.

A spokesman for China’s main policy body for Hong Kong said Wong was looking to establish his own government, want Hong Kong independence and deny the city part of China.

“People repeatedly plead for the sympathy of the world’s powers to intervene. He is a challenger of the principle of ‘one country, two systems’. We express our approval and support for this decision”, said Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office deputy Yang Guang.

The 23-year-old Joshua Wong rose to prominence as a figure in the massive ‘Umbrella Movement’ democracy in 2014 that failed to reach Beijing’s compromise and was jailed for participating in protests.
