|Pan-democrats to meet with liaison office chief
Pan-democrats will hold meetings on political reform from this Friday with the head of Beijing's Liaison Office here.
The talks will take place at government headquarters in Tamar and will be hosted by the Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor.
The Democratic Party will be the first party meeting the director of the Office, Zhang Xiaoming over the reform.
Pan-democrats have been wanting direct dialogue with Beijing officials overseeing political reform.
The lawmakers say the public's demand for a Chief Executive election with genuine choices hasn't been truly reflected by the Hong Kong government.
Meanwhile, Executive Council member, Bernard Chan, says he believes the Central Government has already set the 'framework' for political reform in Hong Kong, but thinks there's still room for discussion on the details.
The National People's Congress Standing Committee is expected to make a decision on political reform in Hong Kong at the end of the month.
Chan said he based his opinion on statements made by mainland officials. --RTHK
