On Monday's Backchat, electoral changes in Hong Kong.
National People's Congress Standing Committee deputy Tam Yiu-chong said on Friday yhat the Beijing-led electoral reform for the SAR is completely in line with the Basic Law and the Chinese constitution.
He said the proposed changes were made in accordance with the "actual situation" of Hong Kong.
The proposed changes include allowing the election committee that chooses Hong Kong's chief executive to elect “a relatively large share” of lawmakers and nominate all Legco hopefuls. Other reports said the number of Legco seats will increase from 70 to 90 and the number of election committee members will be raised from 1,200 to 1,500.
What do you think of the changes? What effect will they have on us?
