Lawmakers urged to mute demands – Standard

From The Standard:

Beijing’s invitation to legislators to troop across the border to Shenzhen for a pep talk tomorrow with Qiao Xiaoyang, deputy secretary general of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, in advance of Sunday’s planned pro-democracy march prompted most of Hong Kong’s Chinese- language newspapers Wednesday to urge the democrats to mute their demands for a timetable for universal suffrage.

The meeting with 43 invited legislators – among them 19 democrats, many of whom are refusing to attend – was greeted warmly by mainstream newspapers who chided the democratic camp for pushing too hard on universal suffrage.
