Democratic Party legislator Lee Wing-tat yesterday admitted he mistakenly entered his office's address as his principal residential address in last month's district council election, in which he successfully defended his seat in the Lai Wah ward of the Kwai Tsing district, and apologised for the mistake. Mr Lee, who lives near Tuen Mun, has a district office in Kwai Fong Estate. He said he was making a declaration to the government to clarify his address. It is illegal under electoral laws to provide false information.
