Carrie Lam has been voted in as chief executive of Hong Kong, to become the city’s first female leader. If you live in Hong Hong, we’d like you to share your thoughts on the result.

Lam won 777 votes out of the 1,194 eligible, beating former financial secretary John Tsang and former judge Woo Kwok-hing.

Only 0.03% of Hong Kong’s registered voters are able to vote, with the election committee comprised of all 70 members of the city’s legislature, business groups, professional unions, pop stars, priests and professors.

Pro-democracy supporters called the poll a “selection, not an election”, with a 1,000-strong protest taking place in the city’s main shopping district.
