Bid to stop filibustering in LegCo
(07-02 18:32)

Pro-Beijing lawmaker Priscilla Leung Mei-fun has proposed talks with the pro-democracy camp in a bid to stop radical lawmakers from successfully filibustering Legislative Council meetings.
People Power lawmakers Albert Chan Wai-yip and Ray Chan Chi-chuen repeatedly stalled progress at the Council's meeting on Wednesday by requesting time-consuming headcounts.
Leung said she hoped to convince more pro-democracy lawmakers to stay in the Council's chamber to enable the legislature to deal with relatively uncontroversial issues before the summer recess.
She said it was the duty of all legislators to ensure the smooth running of the business of the Council. --RTHK
