Hopes dim for reform talks: Cyd Ho
(07-23 10:44)

Labor Party lawmaker, Cyd Ho Sau-lan, says she doesn't hold out much hope for progress in Wednesday's talks on political reform with the Chief Secretary.
She says this is because Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor knows the position of pan-democrat parties on the 2017 elections and has already promised to act as a bridge between them and the central government.
Ho told RTHK progress could be made if Beijing were willing to accept a nominating committee for chief executive candidates that would not be merely a screening mechanism. --RTHK
