Jeanie Lai, 18 This September, I will vote for Alan Leong Kah-kit. Mr Leong came to the public's attention as chairman of the Bar Association amidst the controversial Article 23 legislation. I believe that his background as a lawyer gives him an objective and pragmatic approach to the situation. As an independent candidate, his stance can truly reflect his ideals, without having to conform to party politics. Being part of the Article 45 concern group, he strives for democratic development, which, if appropriately carried out, would strengthen the rule of law in Hong Kong. A fresh face would bring new ideas and colour to the Legislative Council. Angie Chan, 15 I would choose Rita Fan, current president of Legco. She has proposed electing the chief executive by universal suffrage in 2012, and in 2020 for Legco. I think this is a feasible and sensible goal, not only because universal suffrage in 2008 has been ruled out, but also to allow enough time for the political environment in Hong Kong to mature. Being an independent politician also gives her an edge as she is not confined to the stance of any political party. Moreover, her non-radical approach to public issues and drive to maintain peace, equality and prosperity in Hong Kong would lead to the betterment of our society.
