The Democratic Party plans to table motions in all 18 district councils in the next few weeks calling on Chief Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen to attend council meetings and get the views of members on the West Kowloon cultural district project. The first such motion, moved by Democrat Chong Chi-tat, was passed unanimously by the Shamshuipo District Council yesterday. The 17 other district councils are scheduled to meet next month. The party's move comes amid claims that the government is keeping the councils in the dark about the massive arts development, which is to be awarded to a single bidder. Former lawmaker Wong Sing-chi, convenor of the Democratic Party's concern group on the arts hub project, said the government had been turning a blind eye to the views of district councillors. Kowloon City District Council vice-chairman Chan Ka-wai said senior officials used to brief the district councillors on important policies. 'But Mr Tsang has not paid enough respect to the district councils on the West Kowloon project,' said Mr Chan, a member of the Democratic Party's central committee. The Democratic Alliance for Betterment of Hong Kong yesterday set up its own concern group on the West Kowloon project.
