The report on the Constitutional Development of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) by Chief Executive (CE) Donald Tsang is "positive, responsible and pragmatic".
Members of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, the country's top legislature, said this yesterday.
Their remark came at a panel discussion during the NPC Standing Committee legislative session on Tsang's report to the top legislature on public consultation on constitutional development, and whether there is a need to amend the methods for choosing the Hong Kong CE and forming the Legislative Council in 2012.
The NPC Standing Committee members said Tsang's report followed the Basic Law, Hong Kong SAR's constitution, and relevant interpretations of the NPC Standing Committee, and was based on views and suggestions collected from every group and sector of Hong Kong society.
The report reflects comprehensively and objectively all opinions and appeals of Hong Kong society on constitutional development, the members said.
"The report is positive, responsible and pragmatic," they said.
