Before the March - the Argument over Constitutional Reform (02 Dec 2005)


For a long time some of Hong Kong's legislators weren't allowed north of the border. On the morning of our broadcast they were more than welcome. The Deputy Secretary General of the National People's Congress Standing Committee Qiao Xiaoyang wanted to meet them to talk about demands for a constitutional reform timetable. With Sunday's pro-democracy march coming up, the government's saying it's gone as far as it can. The pro-democrats still say it's not far enough. In part two of the programme the Chairman of the Democratic Party, Lee Wing-tat; the Chairman of the Basic Law Institute and CPPCC delegate Alan Hoo; and Danny Gittings of the Wall Street Journal Asia, are in our studio to discuss electoral reform and the current state of public sentiment.
