    Pro-democracy activists are holding a mock ballot to get people to "vote" for Hong Kong's next chief executive.

    The real vote will be cast by a committee of pro-Beijing loyalists this Sunday.

    But addressing longstanding local grievances against China will continue to be a challenge for the city's next leader.

    Al Jazeera's Sarah Clarke reports from Hong Kong.
