Hong Kong protesters scrap vote on next step

The Associated Press

HONG KONG (AP) Organizers of Hong Kong's democracy protests say they're canceling a Sunday vote on the next step in their monthlong street occupation.

They say they have not properly consulted the public before calling the referendum on Friday.

The spot referendum was supposed to have asked the protesters about counterproposals to Hong Kong's government offer following last week's talks between the student leaders and authorities.

Hong Kong's government has offered to submit a report to the central government noting the protesters' unhappiness with a Beijing decision to have an appointed committee screen candidates for the city's top leader in the inaugural 2017 election. The protesters want open nomination and universal suffrage in the elections for the semiautonomous Chinese region.
