Skirting the issue of our next chief

Tuesday, January 14, 2014


Hong Kong's next chief executive could be wearing a skirt.

That's according to former National People's Congress deputy Ng Hong-man who, writing in a newspaper column, said Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Executive Councillor Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee and Democratic Party chairwoman Emily Lau Wai-hing have strong support and could easily stand for the 2017 chief executive election.

But Ip, who is also the chairwoman of the New People's Party, said Ng had "overrated" her, adding she had not given any thought to running in the 2017 election as she is busy with her party's affairs.

No word from the other two ladies, though.
