HONGKONG deputies to China's legislature yesterday made a lone and unsuccessful appeal for a greater say on its executive body. Angry with the lack of nominations by the ruling communists for Hongkong members to sit on the National People's Congress Standing Committee, some local deputies named their own colleagues in the ballot papers for a seat on the 134-member standing body. Six local deputies were nominated, including educationist Mr Ng Hong-mun who received eight votes. The other five were businessman Mr Tsang Hin-chi, unionist Mr Cheng Yiu-tong, chartered surveyor Mr Kan Fook-yee, lawyer Miss Liu Yiu-chu and television star Lisa Wang Ming-chun. All received one vote. A total of 2,907 delegates cast their ballots to elect the chairman, 19 vice-chairman and 134 standing committee members. Apart from the standing committee elections, in which 141 candidates competed for 134 seats, there was only one nominee for each of the seats of chairman and vice-chairmen, under the so-called ''same-candidate elections''. And there was a minor stir as it was announced one ballot had nominated Premier Mr Li Peng to sit on the standing committee. Mr Li was also nominated by one delegate to chair the NPC. Politburo Standing Committee member Mr Qiao Shi, the shadowy figure who once led China's security apparatus, was elected as NPC chairman with 2,850 votes. Forty-four voted against and 24 abstained. Delegates seen as leftists were shunned by deputies, with Beijing Party Secretary Mr Li Ximin getting 2,624 votes, the lowest of any of the vice-chairmen. Two standing committee members, Mr Teng Teng, a former vice-chairman of the STate Education Commission and Mr Xue Ju, vice president of the First Party School had more than 2,600 votes. Mr Zhou Nan, director of the local branch of the New China News Agency became the only deputy ''from Hongkong'' nominated and elected to sit on the standing committee, although Macau businessman Mr Ho Hau-wah also won a seat on the standing body. Guangzhou mayor Mr Li Ziliu said Mr Zhou could only be regarded as ''half a representatiave'' of Hongkong people. He said the standing committee should include one Hongkong delegate, adding the absence of Hongkong representation was a ''defect''. ''I hope the situation will be improved in the next or coming sessions,'' he said. Referring to the eight votes he received, Mr Ng said it made no difference because he was not nominated by the presidium to run for the elections. Another local NPC deputy, Mr Tsang Tak-sing, said it was quite right for NPC deputies to suggest their own preferred candidates to sit on the NPC Standing Committee. Mr Tsang said he was disappointed by the absence of any Hongkong resident on the NPC Standing Committee, adding Hongkong people should have a larger voice on the committee during the latter half of the transition period. ''The current session of the NPC is going to pass a resolution to authorise its Standing Committee to set up a working organ to prepare for the establishment of the Special Administrative Region (SAR) Preparatory Committee,'' Mr Tsang said. ''Without any Hongkong people taking part in the NPC Standing Committee, we need to seek other channels outside the NPC Standing Committee to reflect our views,'' he said.
