As party reviews events, Tsang Yok-sing says: 'My political life is insignificant' The only political party still represented on the Executive Council is considering whether its leader should follow Liberal Party chief James Tien Pei-chun's lead and quit the cabinet. Democratic Association for Betterment of Hong Kong vice-chairman Ip Kwok-him said the party was carrying out a 'cautious' review of recent events, including whether Tsang Yok-sing should resign from Exco. Mr Tsang confirmed he would review his role in Exco but refused to reveal whether he would follow Mr Tien's lead. 'My political life is insignificant ... it could end any time. The crux of the issue is how to make Hong Kong achieve the things that it can achieve,' he said. Mr Tsang dismissed suggestions his party was a loser in the controversy surrounding the Article 23 legislation. But the DAB chairman admitted the party would face difficulties in canvassing support in the coming two elections. There has been wide speculation that the DAB, which stood very much alongside the government all through the Article 23 controversy, will suffer a setback in the elections for district councils and the Legislative Council. 'This political turmoil has increased our problems and difficulties in communicating and gathering support from our electorates in the coming elections,' he said. The party would carry out a review of the crisis and face up to future challenges, Mr Tsang said. The sudden resignation of the Liberal Party chairman, Mr Tien, from the Executive Council had dealt a severe blow to the Exco, Mr Tsang said, and it was time for Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa to consider reshuffling his cabinet. He also said Hong Kong's government sometimes faced obstacles in implementing policies, carrying out decisions and enacting laws - which they believed were right and good for society as a whole - because the government could not get the support of the people of Hong Kong. 'It's hoped that the government can conclude and learn from the experience and improve its quality of governance in the future,' Mr Tsang said. But he declined to say whether Secretary for Security Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee should resign for her handling of the draft legislation, saying that a fair and thorough assessment should be carried out before deciding whether she had properly carried out her job. Mr Ip, who is also chairman of the bills committee scrutinising the Article 23 legislation, reiterated the party's belief that the enactment of the national security bill based on Article 23 of the Basic Law was a duty of Hong Kong, but he said the party respected the government's decision to defer the second reading of the bill. Mr Tsang and Mr Tien joined Exco last July as unofficial members, forming a coalition with the government. Mr Tsang is now the only Legco representative in Exco. On Saturday the party made a public apology after Mr Tsang and a fellow party lawmaker, Chan Kam-lam, claimed that many of the 500,000 people who took part in the protest on July 1 against Article 23 had been misled.
