The Chief Executive election will be held in March next year, and there are more and more dark battles in Hong Kong recently. The National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) Standing Committee member He Zhuguo, who suddenly increased his support for Leung Chun-ying as the Chief Executive in 2013, was a guest on the radio program “Bright Top” on Monday (7), repeatedly blasting the incumbent Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor.
“So what are you complaining about? You have to think about how we Hong Kong people? Sanctioned ah! Because of your ignorant actions!” Ho also repeated that Carrie Lam did not listen to advice during the anti-amendment campaign and tried to force through the amendment, which eventually led to the sanctioning of both Hong Kong and herself: “I remember it very clearly! So now you say sanctions, you did not think, you were sanctioned by people private? But you have caused us Hong Kong people are sanctioned, do you know! The whole of Hong Kong because you do not listen to the advice, since the self-made, so that Hong Kong was sanctioned. You say you are privately sanctioned as if it is very painful, then we suffer and what?”
He also praised former Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying in the program, saying that he was hardworking and “indomitable”, and his popularity was poor, but not worse than that of Lam Cheng.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam responded that there is freedom of speech in Hong Kong, so there are many people commenting on the SAR government’s governance, and she and her team will listen to the views with humility and do a good job in the remaining year of the current government’s term.
