Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa was forced to call off an Election Committee meeting yesterday after 12 members of the insurance subsector failed to turn up. Last night his campaign office blamed the blunder on a 'misunderstanding' but refused to say if it had been Mr Tung's campaign office or the subsector members that had slipped up. But some members of the group said Mr Tung's campaign office had failed to notify them about the meeting. The Chief Executive was to have outlined his policies concerning the insurance sector. When it became clear that the members were not going to attend, the campaign office hastily called off the meeting. It had been scheduled to start at 6pm and last one hour. A spokesman for Mr Tung's election office said last night that the incident had been a misunderstanding between campaign staff and the committee members. He declined to reveal further details. Exactly how the mistake was made remained unclear. Chan Yim-kwong, a member of the subsector who was scheduled to attend the meeting, said he had not been contacted by Mr Tung's office. Legislator Bernard Charnwut Chan, who represents the insurance sector, also said he had not been invited. He said colleagues who had also missed the meeting told him there had been a 'communication mistake'. Mr Tung's office has yet to reschedule the meeting. Mr Tung's election office has been forced to fix a spelling error on his election campaign Web site, after the word 'division' was misspelled in 'Communications Division'. A spokesman for the office acknowledged it had been a 'very bad' mistake.
