  • CE to meet media as calls rise to dump the bill
The Chief Executive Carrie Lam is to meet the media at 4pm amid increasing calls for her to quit and withdraw the controversial extradition bill.

Dozens of journalists had already arrived for the briefing, nearly two hours ahead of the scheduled time.

Lam had made no public appearance on Monday after a record of nearly 2 million people took to the streets on Sunday.

But she had held consultations with some officials and groups about the controversy and to explain her stand.

The chairman of the Association of the Heads of Secondary Schools, Teddy Tang, who had met the CE on Monday, said the CE apologised and expressed regret over what happened in recent weeks.

But he told RTHK that he doesn't think she will quit her post as Lam told them she still has a lot of work to do in different areas such as education, and she wants to carry on.
