DISGRACED former legislator Gilbert Leung Kam-ho is set to return to politics after being released from a two-year jail term for bribery yesterday. 'I love politics. A long time ago, I chose politics as my career. Although there are some barriers, I still have this as my ideal,' he said. Although his conviction prevents him standing in any polls for the next eight years, Mr Leung is considering becoming involved in campaigning for September's Legislative Council election, with several candidates already asking for his help. He said it was possible he would join a political party. 'If a political party invites me to join, and I agree with its platform, I will have an open mind towards it.' Mr Leung, 41, said he was not worried his conviction would damage his political future. 'Every move of a politician is in the spotlight. People's impression of a person can be changed - the most important thing is to show he is sincere,' he said as he left a half-way house in Chai Wan. He reminded other potential candidates in the September election to be careful: 'In an election there must be some enemies: they might use every means to attack you. There are also a lot of traps in the polls. A candidate has to be very clear about the election law and his pledges to voters.' Mr Leung said the election law in Hong Kong was not clear, and that he went to jail - for attempting to buy votes in his campaign for a functional constituency seat in the 1991 Legco elections - because of 'a difficult situation'. 'There are a lot of landmines in the election. I stepped on one myself. I have to take the responsibility.' Mr Leung described the time in prison as a good chance to consider his future. But Mr Leung's priority yesterday was dinner with his family at home. Today he will spend time with relatives. Mr Leung was jailed for three years in June 1993, and was paroled after being behind bars for one year and nine months.
