As the Financial Times learned, the Chinese government is preparing a plan to replace Carrie Lam as Head of the Hong Kong administration. According to the publication, if the decision is approved by Xi Jinping, the interim head of the administration will be appointed by March, when the annual session of the National People’s Congress will be held. This successor to Lam will hold office until the official expiration of her term in office in 2022. But there is no guarantee that the new candidate will remain for a five-year term.

Interlocutors of the publication said that the main contenders for the post of head of Hong Kong are the former head of the Central Bank of the special administrative region of China Norman Chan and the former chief minister of the Hong Kong government, Henry Tang.

According to FT, the Chinese authorities are going to wait for the stabilization of the situation in Hong Kong, and after that make the final decision on replacing the head of administration. Neither representatives of Carrie Lam, nor the Chancellery of the State Council of the PRC for Hong Kong and Macau have yet commented on the information.

In September, Carrie Lam had already denied reports that she allegedly tried to file a resignation letter amid mass protests that swept Hong Kong. Lam had to comment on media reports about her unofficial statements that she would like to leave her post if she had a choice.
