A top aide to Tung Chee-hwa in his re-election campaign has donated $360,000 of her remuneration to a string of non-profit organisations. Maria Tam Wai-chu, a director of the campaign liaison division of Mr Tung's now-defunct election office and a local deputy to the National People's Congress, announced her decision shortly before the Chief Executive's office submitted a declaration of electoral expenses and donations yesterday. Ms Tam said she had sent donations to non-government organisations including the Council of Saint Paul's Co-educational College Charitable Trust, the environmental group Green Fun, the Fukien Chamber of Commerce Education Fund, the Federation of Hong Kong Guangdong Community Organisations Charitable Foundation, the Hong Kong Tree Planting Day and World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong. Ms Tam, a member of the Basic Law Committee, also has spent an unspecified amount of the money received for campaign work on sponsoring the publication of a book on the mini-constitution. A spokeswoman for the Registration and Electoral Office said that as the declarations were only submitted to them after 4pm, full information on Mr Tung's election expenses would not be available for public inspection until Tuesday. Mr Tung yesterday began a short holiday with his wife at an undisclosed location on the mainland. The Chief Executive sought leave yesterday afternoon for a four-day holiday, a spokesman for his office said. Last year the couple spent five days in Anhui and Zhejiang. Chief Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen will be Acting Chief Executive until Mr Tung returns.
