CE made little progress, says Tien
(03-26 16:13)

Liberal Party leader James Tien Pei-chun -- a longtime critic of the Chief Executive -- has admitted being wrong in predicting that Leung Chun-ying would not last a full five-year term in office.
Tien said Leung's efforts to tackle livelihood issues would help him survive.
But he stopped far short of agreeing with Leung's own positive appraisal of his administration, saying the Chief Executive had failed to adequately address key political and economic problems.
Yesterday, exactly two years after winning the election, Leung said he'd made smooth progress in implementing his policy promises. But Tien insisted that only limited progress had been made. --RTHK
