Two pro-democracy groups opposed to Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa's re-election yesterday released their own 'platform', which calls for referendums on all major policies and legislation. Emily Lau Wai-hing of the Frontier said her group and the Social Democratic Forum had taken several months to formulate the 18-page platform which presses for a 'people-based' administration over the next five years. Asked if some of the 19 policies proposed were impractical, Ms Lau said: 'We certainly hope that what we published will not be something which is not too out of touch. If the power were to be given to the public, I don't think they would say they don't want it.' She added that their platform highlighted the public's sense of helplessness and powerlessness. Key measures include: A forum to foster debate on Hong Kong's future economic direction, as well as integration and co-operation with the mainland; Asking Beijing to amend the Basic Law to enable the Chief Executive and legislators and district councillors to be returned by universal suffrage; Asking Beijing to repeal Article 23 of the Basic Law to uphold basic freedoms, and to amend the mini-constitution to enable the SAR Government to vet applications for one-way permits, and; Asking Beijing to reassess the Tiananmen Square massacre and trace who should be held responsible. Mr Tung last week released his own platform, My Pledge to the People of Hong Kong, in a 16-page booklet which largely emphasises previous policies and draws upon a core speech given to supporters on December 13.
