    > Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng said on Wednesday that the government has been studying the possibility of enacting emergency legislation as well as a law that would ban protesters from wearing masks.

    > Cheng confirmed the reports but did not elaborate: "The use of the Emergency Regulations Ordinances requires a consideration of many factors and influences. This is something we are continuing to study to deal with the situation in Hong Kong.".

    > The latest opinion polls from the Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute showed that Cheng's approval rating was at 17.7 points, a record low for her and the lowest among the principal officials.
