LIBERAL political party Meeting Point will accept the appointment of its chairman as an adviser to China if the invitation is extended. In a meeting last night, the party, one of the moderate liberal groups in the territory, decided that Anthony Cheung Bing-leung should take up the role if China made the offer. Party vice-chairman Li Chik-yuet said taking part in China's panel of advisers as well as the Preliminary Working Committee for the post-1997 government would improve communication with China during the transition. He said the party had not received a formal invitation from the Chinese authorities, but said there were ''frequent exchanges'' between the party and mainland officials. Both Mr Cheung and the chairman of the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood (ADPL), Frederick Fung Kin-kee, have been tipped to be among the third batch of advisers, expected to be announced early this year. If appointed, Mr Cheung and Mr Fung, who are seen as less radical than the United Democrats, would be the first members of the democratic camp to become advisers to China. A Meeting Point legislator, Tik Chi-yuen, said that would be a good thing for members of the democratic movement. He said Mr Cheung would reflect the party's views to the advisory body and bring the democratic message to the Chinese side. Asked if the views of the party would be suffocated by the predominant conservatives, Mr Tik said: ''We would make a careful assessment before accepting the offer.'' The ADPL's Mr Fung said his party would be consulted if an invitation was extended to him.
