Chinese top legislature has said its decision on Hong Kong's electoral reforms last August will remain in force in the future, despite Hong Kong Legislative Council's veto of the universal suffrage motion. 
 
A statement from the office of the NPC Standing Committee says although the universal suffrage motion was not passed at the Legislative Council, the direction towards universal suffrage and the legal principles laid down in the decision of the top legislature, must continue to be upheld in future efforts to pursue universal suffrage.
 
It says the decision shall continue to serve as the constitutional ground for Hong Kong in the future as it enforces universal suffrage in the chief executive election, and its legal force is unquestionable.
