Liberal Party vice-chairman and legislator Selina Chow Liang Shuk-yee has been accused of asking a potential rival not to run in the Stubbs Road constituency in November's poll. The rival, television host Anthony Fung, said Mrs Chow had asked him in July not to stand. A former Liberal Party member, Mr Fung said Mrs Chow was wrong to turn him from an ally into an enemy. 'A leader should make good use of talent, not oust them,' said Mr Fung, who hosts ATV's Romance of the Three Kingdoms - The Wisdom Page, a programme about self-development. Mrs Chow denied Mr Fung's allegations, saying she had talked to Mr Fung in July, but had not asked him to stand aside. Mrs Chow said the party had not then decided whether to field anyone as a candidate in that constituency. Nor had she decided whether to stand. But she said she had made clear to Mr Fung that the party was likely to field a candidate. 'My intention was to see whether there is room for co-operation among us,' Mrs Chow said of the meeting at which she saw Mr Fung in her capacity as the person in charge of the party's electoral affairs. Asked whether Mr Fung's candidacy had put pressure on her, given Mr Fung's fame, Mrs Chow said: 'Hong Kong voters are very clever, what they demand from [district council] members is far more than fame.' The third candidate for the November 28 poll is Democratic Party incumbent district board member Mark Lee Kin-yin.
