Henry Tang is in the running, says political commentator Lam

11th October, 2011

Preparations for the city’s chief executive election in March 2012 have entered the final stage. The recent appearance of former PRC president Jiang Zemin has made a lot of noise. Many wonder if this reappearance will have any effect on the election. Veteran political commentator, Lam Chiu-Wing, commented on potential candidates and said that Henry Tang is in the running.

The undeclared frontrunner, Henry Tang Ying-yen, is the former Chief Secretary of Administration in Hong Kong, whose father Tang Hsiang-chien is an ex-member of the Standing Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. Both of them have ties with the former president Jiang Zemin as well as the central government.

Jiang’s presence at the Great Hall of the People on Oct 9, at the celebration of the centennial of the Xinhua Revolution that overthrew the Qing Dynasty, created noises from the public. “Jiang’s appearance quieted the rumors about his death and settled all the political disputes. It’s no doubt that Tang is in the running,” said Lam.

Though committee members of the coming election claimed to base their votes on a candidate's ability and political platform, rather than on the connections the said candidate may have, we all know what the cold truth -- Beijing “controls” the election. Neglecting the fact that Tang will most likely become the next CE, many believe that a fierce competition will soon begin.

Leung Chun-ying, former Convenor of the Executive Council of Hong Kong, is also running for the coming election. Leung, who is believed to have much support from local residents, also has strong ties with the central government. “Though they might not be as close ties as Tang’s, Leung is still a tough competitor of Tang. However, Tang’s more likely to be the one,” claimed Lam.

Other undeclared potential candidates include the Chairman of Democratic Party Albert Ho Chun-yan, the Chairperson of New’s People Party Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee and Former President of the Legislative Council Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai.


Comments from Ms Isabelle Umugwaneza:
You did a good job of providing supporting information on Tang, and the reasons why he is most likely to win the election. Great explanations, and your news angle remains focused on that one point throughout. That is why the last paragraph is not necessary as it introduce a new point-the development of HK's democracy, which can seem distracting after such strong evidence that the CE has already been chosen
