SHOW TRANSCRIPT

China is tightening its grip on Hong Kong. 

It cut the number of directly elected seats in the legislature of the semi-autonomous region.

Now, the public will elect less than a quarter of the seats. Currently, half of those positions are directly elected.

The move seems to be another step by China to reign in political opposition in Hong Kong.
