The chief executive (CE) election of China's Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) started Sunday morning and the sole candidate Ho Iat Seng is expected to be elected as the SAR's new CE.
In accordance with the CE election law, the SAR's fifth-term CE will be elected by a 400-strong election committee and the candidate should obtain more than 200 votes to be elected.
Sunday's election was held at the Macao East Asian Games Dome.
Ho Iat Seng, born in Macao in 1957, had been the SAR's legislature speaker until he resigned earlier this year to run for the CE office.
