Hong Kong: Carrie Lam dismisses criticism of her policy address

Гонконг, Hong Kong
октябрь 16, 2019 в 14:34 GMT +00:00 · Опубликовано

Chief Executive Carrie Lam dismissed a journalist's criticism that her policy address contains "nothing" to address "the central issue driving the protests," when speaking at a press conference at Hong Kong's government headquarters on Wednesday.

Lam noted that "this single policy address could not address or resolve the problems in society, especially those reflected in the social unrest."

She also denounced the pro-democracy lawmakers' rejection of the 2014 Hong Kong electoral reform plan, which notionally allowed the selection of the chief executive by universal suffrage; however, stipulated that candidates must win an endorsement of more than half of all the members of the nominating committee.

Lam argued that "a very reasonable and constitutionally proper package has been voted down by the same group of members who are now seeking another round of discussions or a debate on the constitutional reforms."

"So yes, this policy address may not have all those political solutions, but I did offer, especially when the situation calms down a bit, that true dialogue, a very sincere and open dialogue with various sectors in society," added Lam.

Earlier in the day, Lam was forced to suspend her annual policy address amid heckling from pro-democracy lawmakers at Hong Kong's Legislative Council (LegCo). Lam was forced to halt her speech twice as lawmakers jeered, urging Lam to step down and shouting 'Five demands, not one less." Several pro-democracy lawmakers were reportedly evicted before the session was adjourned entirely.

Following the incident, Lam delivered her address via a video link.
