Last weekend in Hong Kong, voters headed to the ballot box for the first time since mass protests erupted in June. The district council poll was seen as a proxy referendum on the entire protest movement and its calls for greater democratic rights. Amid record turnout, the vote delivered a landslide victory to the pro-democracy camp. So where does this leave the Hong Kong leadership, and what are Beijing's options going forward? We ask Dennis Kwok, a member of Hong Kong's Legislative Council and a founding member of the Civic Party.
