The Liberal Party does not believe it will lose the support of voters if its members sit on the controversial provisional legislature. There have been concerns, especially within the pro-democracy camp, that those sitting on the provisional legislature will lose voters in the 1998 Legco election. They fear the 'dirty jobs' which have to be done by the interim body - such as passing laws to counter the Bill of Rights Ordinance - will not be welcomed by the public. But Liberal Party vice-chairman Ronald Arculli said the party had thought about these concerns and still believed its members should sit on the provisional legislature. 'There's a saying that if you don't do anything, you can't do anything wrong,' he said. 'But that's not our motto. 'We believe we are doers, we are not fence-sitters.' Mr Arculli said people should not assume Liberal Party members sitting on the provisional legislature would necessarily vote for everything tabled to the interim body. He said he was confident voters would be wise enough to see whether his party was working in the best interests of Hong Kong. About 20 party members have expressed interest in joining the Selection Committee, which will choose the post-handover chief executive and the provisional legislature. But Mr Arculli said he would not guess how many party members would compete for seats in the 400-strong selection body and how many of them would actually get in. 'But the more members we have sitting on the Selection Committee, the better,' he said. The party will see how it can help its members get onto the selection body, including lobbying for support within the Preparatory Committee and determining which categories of membership its candidates are best suited to. The selection body will include members from the business, professional, grassroots and religious sectors, as well as former political figures.
