Exco member urges reform consensus
(01-02 15:36)

An Executive Councillor, Bernard Chan, has expressed the hope that a way will be found to allow greater public participation in the chief executive election in 2017.
He said he respected the views expressed by those who took to the streets on New Year's day to call for universal suffrage.
But Chan stressed that any kind of electoral reform needed to gain the trust of the people of Hong Kong as well as that of the Central government.
He said he hoped a consensus on political reform would be reached. --RTHK
