Updated at 6.13pm: Over one-third of respondents participating in a Hong Kong University online poll said that they had no definite idea what Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa should focus on in his eighth policy address. Results of the poll, carried out by the university?s Public Opinion Programme director Robert Chung Ting-yiu were announced on Tuesday. The poll surveyed 1,007 people from December 6 to 9. Mr Tung is scheduled to deliver his annual policy address in early January. Some 33.9 per cent of respondents answered ?Don?t know/hard to say? when asked what Mr Tung should emphasise in his policy address. This is the highest number of respondents to say this since the first poll was conducted in 1998. That year, only 28.2 per cent said: ?Don?t know/hard to say? Mr Chung observed: 'Over one-third did not give specific answers, which is a record-high since the handover, showing that people are losing interest in the policy address.? According to the survey, 26.2 per cent of respondents said ?economic development? should be the focus of the policy address. This was down from 41.0 per cent from last year?s poll. ?Labour and employment? was the third-most common response in the latest poll with 21.2 per cent of respondents mentioning it. ?Regarding their expectations of the forthcoming policy address, people are obviously more concerned with economic and employment issues,?? explained Mr Chung. ?However, the former has significantly decreased, due to economic recovery.? None of the other 10 issues mentioned in the poll rated more than six per cent from respondents. ?Political development?? scored only 1.8 per cent and ??Human rights and freedom?? was the lowest with only 0.1 per cent.
