Civic Party chief executive challenger Alan Leong Kah-kit's election campaign received a boost yesterday after he secured 11 more nominations from the social welfare subsector, taking his total to at least 125. A day after meeting Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen on his election platform, Peter Cheung Kwok-che, president of the Social Workers' General Union, said all 13 unionists on the Election Committee - two of whom had already given their nominations to Mr Leong - had decided to support the Civic Party candidate. 'Mr Leong's election platform is closer to the 10 policy issues that our group advocated,' Mr Cheung said, adding that it included their call for a review of the lump sum grant to non-governmental organisations and universal suffrage in 2012. With the unionists' support, Mr Leong so far had garnered 33 nominations from the 40-seat social welfare subsector. With the 113 nominations that he had earlier declared, the legislator's nominations already exceeded 124 though the exact number was still uncertain, said his campaign office spokeswoman. Mr Leong said he was very grateful for the unionists' trust. 'What I'm especially happy is that they only decided to give me the nominations after meeting the two of us [Donald Tsang and himself],' he said. The latest development came as Mr Tsang held separate closed-door meetings with Election Committee members from the medical and the education subsectors. Speaking after their meeting, medical sector member Tse Hung-hing said Mr Tsang had mentioned that his top priority would be constitutional reform, followed by medical reform and the environmental protection. Dr Tse, of the Medical Association, said that the result of a poll gauging the profession's views on who to nominate would be released on February 26 - the same day Mr Tsang is scheduled to attend a forum where the medical professionals will be invited to exchange views with him. The association's 10 Election Committee members have vowed to nominate and vote according to the results of two separate polls. Besides meeting committee members, Mr Tsang attended a tea gathering with six former district councillors with whom he worked when he was Sha Tin district officer from 1982 to 1984. Former Sha Tin district councillor Alex Choy Kan-pui offered a glimpse into Mr Tsang's character when he described him as acting like a 'warlord' - always demanding swift action. Mr Tsang later met the public in Tai Wai, followed by a visit to Ma On Shan to see a practice session of the Martins baseball team - most of whose members are aged 10 to 12. Mr Leong was also in Tai Wai - to attend an opening ceremony for fellow Civic Party legislator Ronny Tong Ka-wah's office.
