The Chief Executive will try to attend public forums to discuss policies during his re-election bid, but should not have to talk about the polling system, his campaign chairman said. Executive Councillor Leung Chun-ying, chairman of Tung Chee-hwa's election office, said as the incumbent Mr Tung had a duty to listen to public opinion. Mr Leung said he would try to make arrangements for Mr Tung to meet people from various sectors, amid criticism that the election of the chief executive by the 800-member Election Committee was a 'small-circle' election. 'The election is not just confined to the Election Committee. We will try to face the public as well. However, we may leave out some. We'll try our best,' said Mr Leung yesterday. 'We are willing to listen to all views that are beneficial and constructive to Mr Tung's Government and the formulation of policies in the coming five years if he wins - even to views of people that oppose him. 'However, there are matters that are already stipulated in the Basic Law, such as the method of election, that cannot be changed by Mr Tung or any of us. They are not related to Mr Tung's rule in the coming five years. 'We need to consider time constraints too and have to consider that many people are asking to meet Mr Tung,' Mr Leung said. Irene Yau Lee Che-yan, director of the communications divisions of Mr Tung's election office, said she would not rule out hosting public forums for Mr Tung. Mr Tung had earlier rejected attending a forum hosted by the Coalition Against Second Term, which is convened by Frontier legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing. Ms Lau said the election method was integral to Mr Tung's rule. 'It is absolutely related. He has to review the method in the coming five years,' Ms Lau said, adding that Mr Tung had refused to do so despite being asked twice by the Legislative Council. She said Mr Tung should attend a future forum to explain his failure to respect the rule of law and criticism that he has practised cronyism. Mr Tung's supporters yesterday flooded his election office with letters and flowers to show their backing for his re-election. Edgar Cheng Wai-kin, director of the office and formerly head of the Central Policy Unit, pledged that all the election expenses would be publicised after the poll. Basic Law Committee member Maria Tam Wai-chu and Andrew Lo Cheung-on, formerly Mr Tung's senior special assistant, are directors of the campaign liaison division. Ms Tam said the campaign would observe election guidelines strictly.
