Another executive councillor has signed up for the National People's Congress election, with the hope of bringing national perspectives into local policymaking. Cheng Yiu-tong, an incumbent deputy to the state legislature, submitted his nomination for re-election along with Federation of Trade Unions colleagues Wong Kwok-kin and Leung Fu-wah yesterday. His submission came after that of fellow Exco member Bernard Chan. Another councillor, Laura Cha Shih May-lung, has also secured the required nominations. 'It is good for more executive councillors to take part in the NPC election,' Mr Cheng said. 'We can provide more comprehensive perspectives to help the chief executive make policies, especially those relating to cross-border issues.' The federation won three seats in 2002 but one of the deputies, Lee Chark-tim, died. Meanwhile, former Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood chairman Frederick Fung Kin-kee has obtained 14 nominations, including those from incumbent deputy Allen Lee Peng-fei and Paul Yip Kwok-wah, special adviser to former chief executive Tung Chee-hwa. Mr Fung expects to receive two more nominations from the education sector before signing up tomorrow. Democratic Party lawmaker James To Kun-sun plans to sign up early next week. NPC incumbents Ng Leung-sing, Lo Suk-ching and Joseph Lee Chung-tak also registered as candidates yesterday.
