There is little support from provisional legislators for completing all three readings of bills presented to them before the handover. This was the initial response at the end of a week-long internal consultation on three options for passing laws. The interim body is likely to face a legal challenge if it passes laws before June 30. The working group on rules of procedure hopes a decision can be made at a two-day meeting starting in Shenzhen today. Working group convenor Selina Chow Liang Shuk-yee hoped the body would be able to submit one proposal for endorsement at a plenum on March 22. Although only a few members supported the three readings option, they included high-profile members Leung Chun-ying and Ambrose Lau Hon-chuen, a source said. The Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood (ADPL), the Liberal Party and some independents, including Eric Li Ka-cheung, said the three readings should take place after the handover. The Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong and some independent members, including Kennedy Wong Ying-ho, opted for 'the middle-of-road' option - for bills to have their first and second readings before the handover but their third reading after June 30. Mr Leung said finishing the readings before July 1 would not cause trouble. The provisional legislature was responsible for only one part of the legislative process, he said. ADPL legislator Bruce Liu Sing-lee said the party would prefer to leave it until the handover. 'It has a lower political risk and the provisional legislature can also avoid any unnecessary legal challenge,' Mr Liu said.
