Breakfast meetings end on sour note
(03-26 11:28)

The fourth and final breakfast meeting hosted by the Chief Secretary Carrie Lam has ended without making much progress towards finding a consensus on political reform.
Fifteen lawmakers from across the political spectrum attended, but most pan-democrats said nothing substantial had been achieved during talks with the Liaison Office's legal chief, Liu Xinkui.
Lam, admitted that society is still divided on how to achieve universal suffrage, but said she was confident consensus could eventually be reached. --RTHK
