The chairman of the Democratic Party, Wu Chi-wai, has ruled out plans to disrupt or filibuster Legco discussions on a non-binding resolution to support the government's plan to locate mainland officials at the upcoming West Kowloon terminus.

The plan is opposed by the opposition which says locating the cross-border clearance facility at the express rail station here is against Basic Law, which prohibits mainland officials operating in Hong Kong.

Wu said his party will do its best to put up a rational discussion against the plan.

He said with the disqualification of six lawmakers, the pro-democratic camp does not have the numbers to make any kind of amendments. But he hoped the Carrie Lam administration will listen to their arguments.

Wu told RTHK's Janice Wong that letting the public know the impact of the plan on the One Country, Two Systems policy is important to them.
