BPA Makes Strong Appeal for Support to Political Reforms

Nearly a thousand supporters holding banners with statements such as ‘Oppose violence, Support political reform’ and ‘Strive for democracy, Elect the Chief Executive through Universal Suffrage’ gathered outside the Legislative Council early in the morning to show their support for pro-reform Legislative Councilors.


Today (June 17), the Legislative Council will begin the debate on the proposed political reform package. At this critical juncture of the run-up to a legislative vote, members of the Business and Professionals Alliance for Hong Kong (BPA) were joined by other pro-establishment lawmakers and members of the public at the Legislative Council’s designated protest area in a final bid to muster support for the reform proposals. They also called on pan-democratic lawmakers, who have expressed opposition to the proposed package, to take into account Hong Kong’s long-term interest by adopting a rational and pragmatic mind-set when casting their votes. 


BPA members comprising Mr. Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen, Chairman (3rd right), Mr. Jeffrey Lam Kin-fung, Vice Chairman (4th right) and Ir Dr. Hon Lo Wai-kwok (1st right) along with other like-minded members appealed for courage in other Legislative Councillors to change their minds and work together to grasp the opportunities for creating a historical milestone.
BPA members in the Legislative Council, District Councils and other local representatives turned out in force to support the selection of the next Chief Executive in 2017 through universal suffrage.
