BEIJING — The Chinese government’s stance on the constitutional reform in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is “clear and consistent,” a spokesman for the Chinese political advisory body said on March 2.

The central government supports Hong Kong in achieving the universal suffrage in the election of the HKSAR Chief Executive in 2017 in accordance with the Hong Kong Basic Law and decisions made by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee.

The HKSAR Chief Executive should love the country and Hong Kong, said Lyu Xinhua, spokesman for the Third Session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, at a press conference.
