A GROUP of 24 newly elected legislators demonstrated yesterday they had talents other than canvassing. At a meet-the-public session hosted by an RTHK public affairs programme, the legislators and other party members sang songs, did calligraphy, told stories and showed off their knowledge of public affairs. The live three-hour programme was also a time for old foes to mend fences. Chan Yuen-han of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong sang The Light of Friendship with the Democratic Party's Mak Hoi-wah, whom she defeated in the Kowloon Northeast constituency. The programme started with each member taking 15 seconds to express their hopes for the new Legco. Many talked of life-and-death issues such as unemployment, but Democrat Szeto Wah, who appeared last, said he was hoping everyone would tell the truth and would put their words into action. Bruce Liu Sing-lee of the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood again reminded his supporters of the secret of success in his battle against pro-China leader Tsang Yok-sing. Playing guitar, he said: 'I would like to dedicate this song to my wife for all her care and support.' He dedicated another song, The Flower of Freedom , to everyone in the pro-democracy movement. Offstage, legislators met the audience.
