CS meets with group over reform
(07-28 17:28)

The convenor of the anti-Occupy Central group, the Alliance for Peace and Democracy, has called on the government to hold more talks with different sectors of society to forge a concensus on political reform.
Robert Chow Yung was speaking after a meeting with the Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor.
He said that the administration should, in particular, listen to the views of the 70 legislators who would eventually cast a vote on Hong Kong's political future.
Chow said the pan-democratic lawmakers should not be represented by those running the Occupy Central campaign. --RTHK
