DP insists proposal complies with Basic Law
(04-29 17:20)

The Democratic Party has insisted that its political reform proposal complies with the Basic Law and international standards of universal suffrage.
Its three track nomination system allows ordinary voters or political parties to nominate future Chief Executive candidates.
The party has submitted this proposal to the government even though the Bar Association says these methods are unconstitutional.
Party chairwoman Emily Lau Wai-hing said it's not uncommon for lawyers to disagree.
She said the public should take part in Occupy Central's third deliberation day early next month, to discuss reform packages. --RTHK
