Pan-dems call for more talks on political reforms
(08-20 17:12)

Twenty six pan-democratic lawmakers have called on the National People's Congress to leave the door open for continued discussions on political reforms.

The group signed a joint declaration vowing to veto any political reform proposals that fail to meet international standards or which contain unreasonable restrictions.

One of the signatories, Labour Party Chairman Lee Cheuk-yan, said the purpose of the declaration is to tell the public that they need to fight for real universal suffrage and anything sub-standard will be rejected by the pan-democrats.

Mr Lee said the pan-democrats hope they can influence the public to unite in fighting for real universal suffrage. --RTHK
