Hong Kong lawmaker Starry Lee to take leadership of 'urgent' matters at legislative committee amid row over chair

The president of the Legislative Council has said the incumbent House Committee chairperson has the power to convene meetings on “urgent” matters, following outside legal advice.

LegCo President Andrew Leung told reporters on Monday that pro-Beijing DAB lawmaker Starry Lee, who chaired the last House Committee, has the duty and power to deal with legislative issues that have accumulated amid a deadlock over the election of a new chair.
