Civil nomination likely to be ruled out
(05-15 18:17)

The government is set to rule out civil nomination, party nomination and a three-track reform proposal for choosing the next chief executive in 2017.
The Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Raymond Tam Chi-yuen, said on Thursday that it was "very unlikely" that the proposals by radical democrats and the Alliance for True Democracy will be included in the second phase of the government's public consultation on political reform. He said anything else could be further explored. --RTHK
