Beijing has condemned the mass resignation of democrats from the legislature after four pro-democracy lawmakers were ousted by the government.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office (HKMAO) said the move is a blatant challenge to the central government’s power and the authority of the Basic Law.

“The farce completely exposed how some opposition lawmakers disregard citizens for their own political interests. It shows their stubbornly confrontational attitude against the central government. They are, in fact, challenging the Basic Law and the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress [NPCSC]’s interpretation and decision on this matter, also disputing the central authorities’ overall jurisdiction over Hong Kong,” the statement read.
