A Hong Kong election committee is voting Sunday for the city's only leadership candidate, John Lee, who is widely expected to win and become Hong Kong's next chief executive.

As the only candidate in the polls, Lee is expected to win easily, especially since he has Beijing's endorsement and last month obtained 786 nominations from members of the Election Committee in support of his candidacy.
