Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa's popularity rating has dropped for two

consecutive months to 47.0 points, according to Hong Kong University's

public opinion programme. The rating registered in mid-August was the

lowest since the survey began in January 1997. It also represented a

drop of one point when compared with a previous survey in early

August. Of the 1,000 respondents, 52 per cent were dissatisfied with

the SAR government's performance. The number represented a record 9

per cent increase when compared with the July figures. Only 16 per

cent expressed satisfaction with the local government. Respondents who


trusted the Central Government outscored those who expressed faith in

the local government at 37 per cent and 31 per cent respectively.

Distrust in the SAR government reached a record high of 37 per cent.
