  • Pro-democracy 'delinquent' candidates barred from Hong Kong elections

    The Hong Kong government has disqualified 12 opposition candidates from standing in an upcoming election for seats in the city’s legislature, including prominent pro-democracy student activist Joshua Wong. FRANCE 24 correspondent Oliver Farry says while the decision was not surprising, it might fall foul of Hong Kong’s constitutional law.

  • China approves plan to veto Hong Kong election candidates

    China's parliament voted overwhelmingly on Thursday for changes to Hong Kong's electoral system including plans to grant Beijing veto powers over candidates, as leaders move towards a "patriotic" government after huge democracy rallies in the city. Only one member of the National People's Congress voted against approving a draft decision on the changes, which critics say will be one of the final nails in the coffin of Hong Kong's democracy movement.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
