Mok Ying-fan, the Urban Council's representative in the 1995-97 Legco, managed to gain enough support for his constituency bid on the last day of nominations. Mr Mok, of the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood, was joined by two other candidates from the Provisional Urban Council who also rushed in their nominations yesterday - independents Ambrose Cheung Wing-sum and Ronnie Wong Man-chiu. Up until yesterday, Mr Mok had only received backing from three nominators, two short of the five required. After hours of lobbying with party chairman Frederick Fung Kin-kee and colleague Tam Kwok-kiu, Mr Mok managed to complete his nominations half an hour before they closed. 'Councillors mostly have different political backgrounds and it's really difficult to ask them to support me. 'I once thought of giving up, but the party wants me to join the election very much,' Mr Mok said. Mr Cheung said he had only been able to relinquish his British right of abode on Thursday. With both independents and councillors from the Liberal Party as nominees, Mr Cheung said that getting nominations was not a problem. Mr Wong said he could only get enough nominations at a late stage because colleagues were not willing to make known their support too soon. Mr Wong promised to attend 90 per cent of the legislature's meetings and to sit on all the panels related to urban services if he was elected.
