Democrats call for meaningful dialogue with Carrie Lam Listen
Hong Kong First lawmaker Claudia Mo said on Friday that Chief Executive-elect Carrie Lam needs to discuss contentious issues with pro-democracy lawmakers if she is serious about mending divisions in society. Mo was one of 22 pro-democracy lawmakers who earlier called on Lam to halt the government’s legal action against legislators Leung Kwok-hung, Nathan Law, Edward Yiu and Lau Siu-lai. They also say Lam should restart the political reform process, but not within the framework proposed by Beijing. Mo spoke to Annemarie Evans.

He spoke to Annemarie Evans.
