CE 'polarizing society' with signature
(07-29 11:45)

A policy specialist has accused Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying of causing greater divisions in society by pledging to sign a petition against the Occupy Central movement.
Brian Fong Chi-hang, from the Hong Kong Institute of Education, said Leung and other officials should be trying to create consensus rather than further polarizing society.
Speaking ahead of the weekly Executive Council meeting, Leung said the plan to occupy streets to push for democracy had been ruled to be illegal, and government officials and law-abiding citizens would object to such acts.
He said officials were signing the petition in their individual capacity. So far, 28 political appointees have signed, with pledges from Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor. --RTHK
