The vision of soulmates that failed to win a Democrat's heart Amid the acrimony yesterday from the policy address, there was at least some love and kisses, although not all legislators were convinced. Against a backdrop of ferocious attacks on Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, Liberal Party vice-chairwoman Selina Chow Liang Shuk-yee declared that her party and the chief executive were 'natural soulmates'. Mrs Chow, who also sits on the policymaking Executive Council, went on to list similarities of vision between the pro-business party and Mr Tsang as proof that chemistry exists between them. But Democrat Martin Lee Chu-ming was unmoved by the tale of devotion. 'It is very romantic for Mrs Chow to say the Liberal Party and Donald are soulmates. But the truth is that Donald doesn't want their souls. He only wants their votes,' he said, referring to the forthcoming chief executive election. Intrigue on the campaign trail On the face of it, the election team of would-be chief executive hopeful Alan Leong Kah-kit could not be more intriguing. Peggy Ha Ving-voon, who recently resigned as senior administrator of the Democratic Party, will oversee Mr Leong's campaign in the districts. A veteran political journalist, Chan Wai-yee, is set to take up the post of media adviser in mid-November. Ms Chan, better known as Lee Pak-fong, the name she used in the political gossip column in Apple Daily, has just left the paper run by tycoon Jimmy Lai Chee-ying. Wong Ming-lok, a former administrative officer in the government, will act as Mr Leong's campaign manager. Political Animal understands the resignations of Ms Ha and Ms Chan had nothing to do with the chief executive campaign. It was just a coincidence that their departures and the recent return of Ms Wong from overseas studies after she left the government came at the right time for Mr Leong to compose his campaign team. Lone respondent is a non-starter Hats off to Henry Fan Hung-ling, the only executive councillor so far to respond to our inquiry about his plans, if any, for the forthcoming Election Committee election. In a reply issued via the Exco secretariat, Mr Fan said he has no plan to run. Two others earlier indicated their intentions publicly. Anthony Cheung Bing-leung is considering contesting the higher education sector, while Ronald Arculli said he was too busy to join the election. For the rest, who knows?
