The article presents regional risk profile for Hong Kong for the year 2005. The leader of Hong Kong's biggest democratic party will stand down in December 2005, following the poor showing of the Democratic Party in the city's legislative elections in September. Yeung Sum made his decision after increasing pressure from party members to resign, and is now likely to be replaced by the party's vice chairman, Lee Wing-Tat. The pro-Beijing Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong has won support by being stronger on employment and education.
