'No real choice' in Occupy Central vote
(05-07 11:27)

The convenor of the Alliance for True Democracy, Joseph Cheng Yu-shek, said it would have been better if a wider selection of plans for the 2017 chief executive election had been put forward for a citywide vote next month, organized by Occupy Central.
The three plans selected for the ballot at a forum organized by the civil disobedience campaign all push for public nomination.
Cheng acknowledged that this does not give Hong Kong people an alternative choice in the ballot in June.
The proposal of the Alliance for True Democracy came in third, in terms of support at Tuesday night's forum, behind plans from the Students' Federation and People Power.
Robert Chung Ting-yiu, the Director of the Public Opinion Program at The University of Hong Kong, announced the electoral reform plan shortlist endorsed by Occupy Central -- following a vote by about 2,000 people who had to choose from 15 proposals. --RTHK
