I don't expect that to happen frankly. I hope this does not become another iteration of "Who lost China?"
From seeing the way people protested and voiced their demands, I think I can say that if things are done the right way (According to what the people changed in the constitution) then someone worthy and civilized enough will be elected.
I am going to cherish this moment, I never thought it would happen in my lifetime.
