People Power push for transgender marriage law
(10-30 18:46)

People Power legislator, Raymond Chan Chi-yuen, has moved a motion urging the government to speed up legislation on transgender marriage.
The Court of Final Appeal ruled in May that that people who've undergone sex change surgery are entitled to marry -- in their new gender -- a member of the opposite sex.
The court suspended its judgement for a year, to allow the government time to amend the marriage law.
The administration has earlier asked the court for more time but the request was turned down.
Chan said he is worried that the government is trying to delay the process. --RTHK
