On Wednesday's Backchat, pan-dems in Legco and the new cycling track in New Territories.
A majority of the pan-democratic lawmakers have made it clear that they will stay in Legco for the coming year following the announcement of a poll results that determine their fate.
The Democratic Party surveyed some 2,500 people last week, results showed 47.1 percent of supporters said they should serve for another year, just 1.3 percentage points more than those who oppose.
Two lawmakers belonging to the opposition camp, Ray Chan and Chu Hoi-dick, had announced on Monday that they would end their role as lawmakers on Wednesday when the term of the current Legco ends.Tanya Chan also said she would not stay on after September 30, citing personal reasons.
Do you agree or disagree with the decision? Was it the right way to decide? How should they act in the extended Legco?
From 9:15-9:30am, we'll be discussing a new 11km cycling track connecting Yuen Long to Sheung Shui .
