Hong Kong Chief Exeuctive Leung Chun-ying has said that the Hong Kong SAR government -- himself and the Central Government included -- are all determined to implement universal suffrage in 2017.

Lueng said the universal suffrage will be based on Hong Kong Basic Law and relative regulations and decisions approved by the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. He added that the 2017 universal suffrage will be the first time in Hong Kong’s history to allow over five million eligible voters to elect the region's new chief executive.

Therefore, he revealed, the Hong Kong SAR government will do its utmost to get the approval from the majority of the legislative council.

"Every legislative member should take the overall and long-term interests of Hong Kong into consideration, regardless of his own points of view or the interests of his party or political group," he said.
