Chiefs must ensure smooth transition

Hong Kong has an outgoing chief executive and one in waiting for the next three months. Evidently, there is much to be done and the challenges ahead are formidable. That is why Leung Chun-ying wasted no time in getting down to business a day after winning the top job. He has already met Donald Tsang Yam-kuen as well as the heads of the legislature and judiciary.

Letters

Disappointed by chief executive

Our city seems to be embroiled with one scandal or controversy after another and it doesn't involve the lives of film or pop stars, but government officials.

The latest is related to Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen's luxurious trips by private jets and yachts, reimbursed by him based on nominal fares.

Tsang must explain

Lawmakers want the chief executive to face the Legislative Council tomorrw over allegations of collusion, conflict of interest or bribery, despite his promise to review the rules of conduct.

The public is not happy either. Hundreds of protesters marched to Government House on Sunday in a protest organised by the Labour Party, urging Donald Tsang Yam-kuen to step down.
