Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said during a press conference Monday that she will not seek a second term, citing family reasons for her retirement after working for 42 years as a public servant.

Lam, 65, said her family members believe that she has served “enough time to be back with the family.”

She said she had notified the central government about her intention to retire during the annual gatherings of national lawmakers and political advisors, known as “Two Sessions,” in March last year.
