Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen is to meet all Legislative Council members on November 6 ahead of the public consultation on constitutional reform next month. The pan-democratic camp will meet tomorrow, aiming to reach a consensus on its demands for political reform before the meeting with Tsang. While the reform proposal will omit implementation of universal suffrage for electing the chief executive in 2017 and the legislature in 2020, some pan-democrat lawmakers say the issue cannot be avoided. In his policy address last month, Tsang said the government would release proposals for electoral methods for the chief executive and the Legislative Council elections in 2012, and public consultations on the issue would be launched in November. He will hold three sessions to meet all 60 members of the legislature. The 23 lawmakers from the pan-democratic camp will be the first group to meet Tsang, followed by the Beijing-friendly camp, including the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, the Federation of Trade Unions and the three-member Economic Synergy. Democratic Party chairman Albert Ho Chun-yan said there were difficulties on reaching a consensus within the pan-democratic camp on common demands for political reform. 'There are members insisting on pushing for 2012 dual universal suffrage, while some will keep their focus on the big picture in 2017 and 2020,' he said. Ho did not comment on whether the camp's bargaining power would be weakened if it failed to reach a consensus. Regarding his party's demands on the reform proposals, he stressed the utmost importance of giving a clear road map to universal suffrage in 2017 and 2020. 'Nobody can tell how we can reach universal suffrage in 2017 and 2020 without a clear target. I wish the government would also consult Hongkongers on political reform in 2017 and 2020,' Ho said. Civic Party leader Audrey Eu Yuet-mee also said she hoped the camp could achieve a common stance before meeting Tsang. The camp had written earlier to request a meeting with the chief executive before the release of the reform proposals, but Eu said she feared that next month's meeting would be too late. DAB chairman Tam Yiu-chung said it would be very difficult for Tsang to satisfy the pan-democratic camp's demands. 'Donald Tsang had noted earlier that he was unable to deal with electoral methods in 2017 and 2020. I hope our political development can move forward this time instead of standing still,' he said. Two weeks ago, during a question-and-answer session with the legislature, Tsang said the consultation on reforms for 2012 would not include reference to the chief executive and all members of Legco being elected by universal suffrage in 2017 and 2020, respectively.
