CE signs petition for anti-Occupy
(08-15 17:34)

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying signed the petition to support anti-Occupy movement at the office of Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce at Admiralty.
He said like all Hongkongers, he sincerely hoped the universal suffrage could take place in 2017. But he stressed that all illegal actions against Basic Law should be forbidden.
''I sign to express my support to a peaceful way to push universal suffrage,'' said Leung.
He said he is working hard to pass on messages between various parties, hoping to improve communication.
Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has earlier signed the petition online.
