No longer the largest political party in the legislature representing tycoons and business leaders, the Liberal Party has said goodbye to Central. Party leaders said the moving of its headquarters to the industrial area of Kowloon Bay might at least bring good luck and boost coffers that had become lighter due to changing political and economic tides. 'There are lots of fat men in the party, but there are no longer any rich men,' party vice-chairman Tommy Cheung Yu-yan said yesterday at the party's first media gathering in its new office. Party chairwoman Miriam Lau Kin-yee said it was now on the eighth floor - a lucky number for Chinese - of 'a nice building, with a full sea view'. The 4,000 sq ft office in Manhattan Place is owned by former party chairman James Tien Pei-chun, who is leasing it to the party for a token rent of HK$1 a month. Although visitors complained it was too far away from the political and financial heart of the city, unlike its former headquarters in Duddell Street, vice-chairman Vincent Fang Kang said he liked the new location because it was closer to industrialists. Some observers believe this reflects the party's shifting of focus from big businesses to small- and medium-sized ones, especially after several business sector legislators quit the party following last year's Legislative Council election. Ms Lau said the party would make sure members were more disciplined in the legislature and would also be more thorough when recruiting new members. 'We can only take on someone who really supports our vision and has reasonable expectations from our party,' she said. The Liberals recently expelled member Lee York-fai after he defied a party decision and ran in a district council by-election. After he lost the race, he was arrested by graft-busters for alleged vote-buying.
