Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen has regained first place in the top 10 most well-known political figures, a university survey has found. Veteran democrat Szeto Wah jumped to No4 in the familiarity stakes in the latest survey conducted by the University of Hong Kong last week. He had ranked 16th in late October. Independent lawmaker Anson Chan Fang On-sang and former security chief Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee overtook the chief executive as the most familiar political figures in the previous survey in October, not long before the Legislative Council by-election. It was the first time Mr Tsang had dropped to third ranking since he won the chief executive election last year. Mr Tsang regained his top ranking in the survey, conducted after the announcement of his political appointees two weeks ago. Chief Secretary Henry Tang Ying-yen, at No5, was the only senior government official on the list apart from Mr Tsang. Democrat Martin Lee Chu-ming ranked second, while Mrs Chan's familiarity fell from No1 in October to third and Mrs Ip to eighth. Robert Chung Ting-yiu, director of Hong Kong University's Public Opinion Programme, said the surge in Mr Szeto's renown was probably due to the latest June 4 remembrance activities this week. The survey interviewed 1,000 people from last Wednesday to Monday.
