Soap opera actor Lau Hing-kee, better known as Lau Dan, spent more than $2.1 million on his failed Legco campaign - more than four times as much as a Democrat who beat him. The Liberal Party candidate, who led a three-member list in New Territories East on September 10, won 15,450 votes. According to the information declared by Mr Lau to the Registration and Election Office, he spent $2,176,406 on his campaign - $140 for each vote. But Mr Lau and his running mates handed over only $111,890, as they received $2,064,516 in donations, including $2,005,995 from the Liberal Party and $50,000 from Emperor Group tycoon Albert Yeung Sau-shing. In contrast, Democrat Andrew Cheng Kar-foo spent only $490,862 to win in the same constituency. The amount Mr Cheng spent was $97,858 less than the $588,720 he raised in donations from the Democratic Party and other sources. He won 49,241 votes. Emily Lau Wai-hing, of The Frontier, spent $800,634 to secure a seat in the same constituency.
