LANSING – Vicky Lee, a sophomore in human development and family studies at Michigan State University, had slept less than four hours in three days. “Every time I am going to sleep, there is something big that happened there,” she said of the current protests in Hong Kong against the Chinese government concerning the procedure for electing the region’s chief executive. She is one of about three dozen students from Hong Kong at MSU, according to its Office for International Students and Scholars. The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress has decided that Hong Kong residents can elect their chief executive from a field of two to three candidates in 2017. Before that election, however, candidates must get more than half the votes of a nomination committee.
