Civil nomination against Basic Law
(05-05 16:41)

The Law Society of Hong Kong said on Monday that the idea of civil nominations or party nominations, which would allow ordinary voters and political parties to put forward candidates for the 2017 chief executive election, was inconsistent with the Basic Law.
Announcing the details of the society's submission to the government on constitutional reform, the Society's president, Ambrose Lam San-keung, refused to comment directly on the idea of 'civil recommendation' but indicated that the powers of the nominating committee needed to be respected. --RTHK
