CE confident in reform proposal

April 14, 2015

Chief Executive CY Leung says he has confidence in the political reform proposal, noting that it is in line with the Basic Law, the National People's Congress Standing Committee decisions and Hong Kong people’s aspiration for democracy.


Speaking to reporters before an Executive Council meeting today, Mr Leung said the Government would submit the reform package to the Legislative Council when it is ready, and that the community and lawmakers could have an in-depth discussion on it.


Hong Kong people have longed for universal suffrage, Mr Leung said, and he believed the community will support the reform package. The Government will also try its best to garner support from the public and lawmakers, to get LegCo's endorsement.


If it could foster the passage of the reform package, the Government would be willing to arrange meetings between lawmakers and Beijing officials, he added.
