Carrie Lam rejects criticism over future LegCo
(07-21 16:30)

The Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, has rejected criticism that the government has given up the opportunity to change the Legislative Council in its recent report on political reform to Beijing.
The government had said the public "generally agreed" that there was "no need" to change the method for forming the Council in 2016. That means the much-criticized split voting system and functional constituencies will not be abolished.
During a meeting of the Council's Constitutional Affairs Panel, pan-democratic legislators criticized officials for protecting those with vested interest. But Lam said there was no need to hurry on the matter. --RTHK
