(The abbreviation for Executive Council should be Exco, not EC. You were making accusation that Wong had tried hard to avoid. He just said he simply didn't know what was the reason for the delay but he didn't name who was responsible. Specifically, he did not put the blame squarely on CE and the Exco. In your last paragraph, you had made an error by naming TVB as the TV station which ownership had changed hands for so many times. It was ATV that he was referring to. As a matter of fact, the ownership of TVB just changed hands once when Sir Run Run Shaw and his wife retired from the board earlier this year.)

CE and EC delay new TV licenses--105065 2012年12月12日 (三) 09:48 (UTC)

(12 December 2012) - The issue of new free TV licenses becomes a hot topic these days in Hong Kong. Communications Authority's Raymond Wong yesterday said the Chief Executive and the Executive Council were to blame for the delay of issuing new licenses.

Raymond Wong, the chairperson of Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee revealed that the endorsement of the new licenses had been submitted to the Chief Executive and the Executive Council once C.Y. Leung, the new Chief Executive, inaugurated. But before the establishment of the Communications Authority in April this year, the Broadcasting Authority, which was the former authority responsible for television regulation, had also made their recommendations on the new licenses to former Chief Executive, Donald Tsang, July last year.

Only the Chief Executive in the Executive Council has the rights to issue free television programme service licenses in Hong Kong.

Commenting on the complaints from the existing TV stations TVB and aTV, Wong said that he understood their standpoint and it was within his expectation.

"But it doesn't mean that I support their argument of opposition," he said.

He rebutted TVB's argument that the new TV stations would hurt its profits. He said that there is no guarantee of making any profit at the time of issuing and TVB's worry is originated from the fear of losing its audience.

"The management of the station is so bad that I cannot tell how many times they [TVB] have transferred their business ownership," said Wong, adding that the audience has the choice to switch to other channels and the viewers will benefit from it if there are more TV stations to come.
