New president elected for Law Society
(08-19 15:36)

Vice president Stephen Hung Wan-shun was elected to replace Ambrose Lam San-keung, who quit the position after losing the non-confident vote.
Lam announced his resignation before the Council meeting which was supposed to decide his fate.
Member Kevin Yam Kin-fung, who initiated the no confidence vote, said Lam has done the right thing by stepping down.
Lam came under fire after he expressed support for the White Paper published recently by Beijing, which regarded judges in Hong Kong as "administrators".
He remains on the Council.
