Unionist legislator Leung Yiu-chung faces a dilemma in his bid for a district council seat in Kwai Tsing. Mr Leung, running in the Kwai Fong constituency under the Neighbourhood and Workers' Service Centre banner, said he wanted to stick to the promise of no canvassing on election day he made at a Legco debate in July. But he was also eager to ensure voters heard his policies. He also did not want voters to think he had withdrawn. Mr Leung, an incumbent Kwai Tsing District Board member, supported an amendment to designate election day a no-canvassing day. The amendment was defeated. He has said he will not canvass on Sunday because he claims it would 'disturb residents'. 'Although they like home visits and like you to talk to them, they feel annoyed on election day when team members knock on the door, ask for votes and then run away,' Mr Leung said. But his statements in election pamphlets that he would not canvass on election day had created the impression in some quarters that he wanted to withdraw. 'I cannot canvass for support on that day because I do not want to breach my promise. But I also want to tell the electorate I'm still running in the election,' he said. His rival, Chan Yung of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong, dismissed Mr Leung's promise as a gimmick. 'I will continue to canvass for support and serve Kwai Fong,' Mr Chan said. He likened the election to a fight between famous heavyweight Mike Tyson and a new boxer, adding: 'Mr Leung is much more well-known than me.' Mr Chan is one of the nine DAB hopefuls seeking to build party influence in a district traditionally dominated by 'small d' democrats. The DAB's only candidate in the 1994 district board election was defeated. 'The DAB's influence is quite weak in the district. It's because we started serving the district late. We only have a history of seven years working here,' Mr Chan said. In the 1994 polls, the Democratic Party, the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood and the Neighbourhood and Workers' Service Centre won 17 out of 26 seats. The Democratic Party has fielded 15 candidates this year, with three returned unopposed. Democrat legislator Sin Chung-kai, who is unopposed in the Wah Fung constituency, believes the party will win nearly all its seats. 'The DAB might break its record here [by winning a seat] . . . but will not threaten our dominance,' he said.
