Mr Tung last night urged critics of the provisional legislature to stop telling Western countries it was illegal, warning that this would damage Hong Kong's interests. Speaking on the eve of his first meeting with the Democratic Party since his selection, Mr Tung said there were two kinds of opposition to the legislature. There were those in the legal profession who criticised out of goodwill and those who kept giving overseas communities the 'negative side' of the body, he said. 'They do not want to see the provisional legislature come into being. They deliberately oppose it,' he said, calling such acts 'unconstructive and arbitrary'. 'I hope those who are engaging in such activities relentlessly will cut down on doing so,' he said. Mr Tung said Tuesday's US ruling against the extradition of alleged tobacco smuggler Jerry Lui Kin-hong was a case of the West showing no trust in the future legal system. 'It is an unreasonable decision. They do not understand the situation of Hong Kong and that was what I referred to as [resulting from] comments that stress the downside of Hong Kong.' Asked whether he was referring to the Democrats, he said: 'I don't want to point a finger at any particular person. They know [who they are] deep in their hearts. I hope we can all unite.' Mr Tung called on them to keep the interests of Hong Kong in mind. The Democratic Party will reiterate its opposition to the provisional legislature when it meets Mr Tung today. Legislator Lee Wing-tat said: 'Society should have different voices. Our stance on the provisional legislature should not be an obstacle hindering future co-operation on other aspects. 'We were not angry with Mr Tung when he said we opposed everything proposed by the Chinese Government. We hope he won't be angry with us, either.'
