A motion calling for the dismissal of the Chief Executive's most trusted aide, Andrew Lo Cheung-on, is likely to be tabled in the Legislative Council, a lawmaker said yesterday. Legal sector representative Margaret Ng Ngoi-yee said she would table the non-binding motion on November 8, unless Legco set up a select committee to investigate the Robert Chung Ting-yiu affair. The University of Hong Kong vice-chancellor and a deputy resigned after an independent inquiry found that they had tried to stop Dr Chung conducting polls on Mr Tung. The inquiry described Mr Lo, who had discussed the polls with the vice-chancellor, as a 'poor and untruthful witness'. At yesterday's House Committee meeting, Ms Ng accused Mr Lo of dereliction of duty. 'Everybody has the right to introduce a motion, and so do I,' she said. Democratic Party leader Martin Lee Chu-ming will table a resolution to set up an inquiry panel, but he admits that without both the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong and Liberal Party's support, it is not likely to pass. He said the Democrats would support Ms Ng's motion should his resolution fail. Chan Kam-lam of the DAB said his party did not support the moves by Mr Lee and Ms Ng. Selina Chow Liang Shuk-yee of the Liberal Party said the party had not decided whether to support Ms Ng's motion. Mr Lee suggested top officials should brief Legco after trips to Beijing and abroad, to increase accountability.
