The head of Beijing's Liaison Office in Hong Kong has said the controversy surrounding the method of electing the next chief executive in 2017 is the most worrying challenge facing the city.
But, Zhang Xiaoming also said the five-month public consultation on the issue had been successful.
Zhang said society was gradually reaching a consensus - and people want to grasp the opportunity to implement universal suffrage in 2017. He expressed the hope that all those involved in the process would continue to communicate rationally. --RTHK
