The following is from The Straits Times, a local newspaper.

High hopes and expectations have been placed upon Tommy Thomas as the new attorney-general. He is expected to carry out his duties without fear and favour.

It is expected that he would charge corrupt leaders, within the ruling Pakatan Harapan and opposition Barisan Nasional leaders, without any distinction.

Would it be wrong if "would" were replaced by "will"?
