Another moderate pan-democratic lawmaker has been included on the guest list of an official delegation to Beijing for celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Dr Joseph Lee Kok-long, who represents the health services sector, said he received the invitation from the Chief Executive's Office yesterday. Lee and 13 other lawmakers are on a three-day trip to Sichuan province to check on earthquake reconstruction projects funded by the Hong Kong government. Lee and Frederick Fung Kin-kee, a lawmaker from the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood, are the only two legislators from the pan-democratic camp who have been invited so far to join the 200-strong delegation led by Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen on a three-day trip starting on Wednesday. A Hong Kong official said the government was still contacting those on the guest list and would name the delegation later. Core democrats, including those from the Democratic Party and the Civic Party, have not been invited. A person familiar with the details of the delegation said hopes were not high for invitations for the Civic Party following its call for the resignation of all 23 pan-democratic legislators if the government failed to come up with a road map for electing the chief executive by universal suffrage in 2017. The Civic Party's Ronny Tong Ka-wah, who was invited to the 55th anniversary celebrations, said Beijing would have missed an opportunity to engage in dialogue with the democrats on political reform if only a few democrats were invited.
