POLITICAL heavyweights Allen Lee Peng-fei and Tsang Yok-sing are set to win their maiden election bids and sit on the last Legislative Council before the handover, according to a poll commissioned by the South China Morning Post. The poll, conducted by Lingnan College lecturer Li Pang-kwong, showed Mr Lee was supported by 21.8 per cent of the 548 respondents, more than his three opponents got in total. Cheung Hok-ming, of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong (DAB), had the backing of 7.2 per cent of voters, Democrat Cheung Wing-fei secured 5.1 per cent support and United Ant, Law Yuk-kai, 8.1 per cent. Nearly half, 45.1 per cent, said they had not decided. All four are standing in the New Territories Northeast, which has 112,438 eligible voters. Mr Lee chairs the Liberal Party and the September poll is the first election he has participated in his 17-year political career. Mr Li said although a large number of people had not decided, the strong lead Mr Lee commanded suggested he was very likely to win. As for Mr Law, whose level of support surpassed representatives from two big political parties, Mr Li said some respondents claimed they backed him because he was a hard-working person. Respondents were also impressed by his firm pro-democracy stand. In Kowloon Central, 23.9 per cent of the 543 respondents said they would back Mr Tsang and 18.4 per cent would vote for his rival Bruce Liu Sing-lee. Mr Tsang chairs the pro-China DAB. Mr Liu is a leading member of the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood. Nearly half, 47.9 per cent, of the voters said they had not made up their minds. Mr Li said Mr Liu still had a chance as a large portion of voters had not decided and the election would not take place until September. 'We cannot say for certain Mr Tsang will win,' he said. 'The results depend very much on their campaign in the final few weeks.'
