Legco's cross-party coalition yesterday pushed for a meeting with Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa over its proposed $25 billion economic rescue package. Coalition convenor and Liberal Party chairman James Tien Pei-chun met Mr Tung on Tuesday following fruitless talks with Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung over the proposals a week ago. Mr Tien quoted Mr Tung as saying the Government had no immediate plan to implement the coalition's proposals. But Mr Tien said the administration did not disagree with the contents of the proposal. He said it would like to address the issue in the run-up to Mr Leung's maiden Budget in March. 'It's a matter of timing,' he said. Speaking after briefing the eight political parties and groups about his meeting with Mr Tung, Mr Tien said: 'If Mr Tung is willing to meet the eight political groups to discuss this issue, it will certainly help ease the relations between the executive and legislature.' Mr Tien dismissed a suggestion that Mr Tung may include coalition proposals in his platform for the next chief executive election. 'The timing may be a coincidence. I don't feel that way,' Mr Tien said. Asked whether Mr Tung would meet the coalition, a spokeswoman for the Chief Executive's office only acknowledged the request had been made.
