Pan-democrats lament fruitless meeting
(03-19 11:14)

Pan-democratic legislators have again complained about a lack of meaningful discussion on constitutional reform, following a second breakfast meeting with officials from Beijing's liaison office.
The Civic Party's Kwok Ka-ki said the pan-democrats had stated the wish for a transparent and representative method for nominating and electing future chief executives.
But he said the liaison office representatives were only able to record the views raised to reflect them to their superiors.
However, the Secretary for Justice, Rimsky Yuen, said the meeting had gone well, and it would pave the way for future discussions. –RTHK
