CE urges cooperation for reform
(08-19 17:59)

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said today that the National People's Congress Standing Committee will soon make a decision on his report on constitutional reform, ushering in a new stage for this reform.
Leung spoke to reporters ahead of an Executive Council meeting Tuesday. He called on people to work with the Central Government to reach a consensus on universal suffrage to elect the Chief Executive in 2017.
It would be a great step forward to allow more than 5 million eligible voters to elect Chief Executive for the first time in history, he said.
Leung said the government has been working hard to reach a consensus within the Hong Kong society and with the Central Government, and it will continue its efforts.
He also urged the people to express their views in a peaceful, rational and lawful manner and not to use means that upset social order and stability, adding Hong Kong is an open society that respects different opinions. --Xinhua
