Government's response to procession

     In response to the public procession today (February 1), a Government spokesman said the following:

     "The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government published on January 7 the 'Consultation Document on the Method for Selecting the Chief Executive by Universal Suffrage' to launch a two-month public consultation to consult the community on issues relating to the method for selecting the Chief Executive by universal suffrage.

     "The HKSAR Government calls on all sectors of the community to adopt an accommodating, rational and pragmatic approach, as well as an inclusive attitude to express views, to forge consensus so that 5 million eligible voters can elect the Chief Executive by universal suffrage through 'one person, one vote' in 2017."
