Unofficial vote just 'a political expression'
(06-25 15:05)

An Executive Councillor has questioned the usefulness of Occupy Central's unofficial referendum on how to elect Hong Kong's chief executive in 2017.
Cheung Chi-Kong says it's not a scientific gauge of public's views.
In an exclusive interview with RTHK, he said the ongoing vote was nothing more than a political expression. --RTHK
