The outcome of the Kowloon East race is a foregone conclusion, with two seats going to the Democratic Party and the third to the DAB, according to a survey. A poll commissioned by the South China Morning Post forecast a Democrat landslide over the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong (DAB) and the non-affiliated Harriet Fok Pui-yee. The 389 respondents interviewed by Asian Commercial Research between May 8 and May 15 gave the Democrats 72 per cent support, while the DAB secured only 27 per cent. That would give Szeto Wah and Fred Li Wah-ming two seats and unionist Chan Yuen-han the third. Mr Li said the results proved the Democrats' canvassing strategy was successful. 'We like to do a targeted campaign while Ms Chan opts for touring around the constituency in a jeep. This fails to give voters the personal touch,' he said. Mr Li attributed the DAB's problems to Ms Chan's unknown party colleagues, Kwok Bit-chun and Lam Man-fai, who were ranked second and third on the party's ticket. 'The crux of Ms Chan's problem is the 'two sons' she brought along with her. It is quite difficult for them to canvass for votes on their own.' Mr Li also thought the DAB should have deployed more manpower to help party chairman Tsang Yok-sing, who is contesting the Kowloon West poll. 'They are gambling on winning one more seat anyway. Why not give more resources to Mr Tsang rather than boosting the two who have only a slim chance of winning.' Ms Chan said she was confident her party would win two seats. She said of Mr Li's criticism of her 'two sons': 'If my colleagues are my sons, then Mr Li is Szeto Wah's grandson.' Ms Fok said she was confident of securing a seat despite her poor poll rating. 'If I say I will be a 100 per cent sure-win, it would be too arrogant. Then let me say it will be 85 per cent.' Ms Fok, a former member of the ADPL, said voters no longer paid blind allegiance to parties. Ms Fok said she would distribute flyers before the poll and needed do little else to remind voters who she was.
