Electors have been asked to remember the controversial roles Anson Chan Fang On-sang played in the opening of the new airport and the mass slaughter of chickens when she was chief secretary. Legislator Choy So-yuk, of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, also hit out at pan-democrats, accusing them of sacrificing people's well-being by supporting Mrs Chan, who is running in the December 2 Legislative Council by-election on Hong Kong Island. Speaking yesterday on the RTHK radio programme Letter to Hong Kong, Ms Choy alleged that Mrs Chan ordered the opening of the new airport in 1998 even though it had not been fully ready. She also claimed that the former chief secretary mishandled the city-wide poultry cull in 1997, which resulted in dead chickens being dumped in the countryside. Ms Choy also pointed to the case of Kwok Ah-nui in 1986 as an example of Mrs Chan's bad record on human rights protection. Mrs Chan, who was social welfare director at the time, ordered the forced removal of the five-year-old girl from her home because her mother was mentally unstable. Ms Choy said Mrs Chan should be held responsible for mishandling these cases, and questioned why pro-democracy camp leaders still supported her. 'The prize for Mrs Chan is eight months in office. For Hong Kong people, it may be a test of their political maturity,' Ms Choy said. Mrs Chan's election rival is likely to be former secretary for security Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee, who is supported by the DAB.
