CE rejects TV debate on reforms

March 24, 2015

Chief Executive CY Leung has rejected calls for the Government to take part in a televised debate on political reform. 


Speaking before today's Executive Council meeting, Mr Leung noted that there are fundamental disagreements between the Government and the pan-democrats over the concept of civic nomination, which he reiterated does not comply with the Basic Law.


He stressed that while these differences exist, the debate would not bring any effect.


In response to media enquiries about his seeking re-election, Mr Leung said he would not rule out any possibility, but for the meantime, he would focus on delivering and implementing the pledges he made in his election manifesto.
