The pro-democracy camp was in danger of losing the leadership of some councils, City University's Ivan Choy said. He said the 102 members to be appointed to the councils by Mr Tung could upset the balance. The democracy camp stood a good chance of heading the councils in Shamshuipo and Kwai Tsing, Mr Choy said, but was in trouble in Eastern and Central and Western. The Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood and the Democratic Party claimed 13 of the 26 seats in Shamshuipo, while both parties gained 11 of the 36 seats in Kwai Tsing, with the DAB having only two. Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee Chu-ming was pessimistic about the pro-democracy camp's chances of gaining much control of the councils. 'Bear in mind the Government will appoint some members,' he said. Three democrats gained chairmanships after the elections in 1994. The number was reduced to one after the handover when the Government appointed members to 'balance' the district boards.
