Transcript of remarks by CE at media session (with video)

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mr C Y Leung, at a media session at the ground floor lobby of the West Wing of Central Government Offices at Tamar today (September 1):

Reporter: Mr Leung, are you saying that there's still room for improvements or changes? So, the decision's not final?

Chief Executive: The decision is a framework decision. The decision is a decision about the principles of the election of the Chief Executive in 2017 and beyond. The decision wasn't designed to exclude certain members of Hong Kong or certain members of certain factions from running for the Chief Executive position.

Reporter: Pan-democrats have vowed to veto any proposal. Is it worth it, going on with this process?

Chief Executive: Yes, it is obviously worthwhile for everyone to pull towards this direction. After all, it is the first opportunity. It's a very good opportunity for Hong Kong to achieve one man, one vote universal suffrage to elect our Chief Executive. It is something that we should all feel proud of and it is an opportunity we should all treasure. Thank you very much.
