SOT, Tanya Chan, Legislative Councillor: "You can see that our whole team, the pan-democratic camp, work jointly in order to tell Carrie Lam face to face our five demands. In the past four months, Hong Kong people have had a very difficult time, a very very tough time, however, our chief executive, Mrs. Carrie Lam refuse to respond or to resolve the problems. Our five demands are very clear, not one less. And I really urge her, if she can't govern Hong Kong and she has no determination to govern Hong Kong and she has no ability and even incapable in administrating Hong Kong, please step down. This is the only way that we can have a good future and this is the only way that Hong Kong can go forward. Please, please Mrs. Carrie Lam, please don't let us suffer anymore, please go."

SOT, Au Nok Hin, Legislative Councillor: "It is very rare for a a case of a government trying to speak their policy address on TV. Either they are terrorists like Osama Bin Laden or they are from the government itself, which is impossible to deliver their policies in the parliament or legislating council like Mrs. Carrie Lam in Hong Kong."

Hong Kong lawmakers urged for Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam to step down on Wednesday, as protesters gathered at Hong Kong's Legislative Council.
"I really urge her, if she can't govern Hong Kong and she has no determination to govern Hong Kong and she has no ability and even incapable in administrating Hong Kong, please step down," said lawmaker Tanya Chen referring to Lam.
"It is very rare for a a case of a government trying to speak their policy address on TV," said lawmaker Au Nok Hin referring to Lam's decision to deliver her speech via a televised address. "Either they are terrorists like Osama Bin Laden or they are from the government itself, which is impossible to deliver their policies in the parliament or legislating council like Mrs. Carrie Lam in Hong Kong."
Since March, Hong Kong has been rocked by demonstrations sparked by a planned, but now-withdrawn extradition bill. The rallies have evolved into a movement with wider grievances against the Hong Kong administration.
