Anson Chan nudges people for suffrage ideas
(12-17 14:23)

Former chief secretary, Anson Chan, has urged Hong Kong people to present their ideas on universal suffrage regardless of comments from local or mainland officials.
Mrs Chan rejected the suggestion that to do so would resemble negotiating in a wet market, a descriptive used by Executive Council convener Lam Woon-kwong.
She says her own group, Hong Kong 2020, will put forward proposals during the first quarter of next year.
Mrs Chan said her group had not yet reached a consensus.—RTHK
