Look and listen
While it's hard to get excited about an election that is already decided, the fact that there's actually two candidates in this year's Chief Executive election in Hong Kong is progress of sorts. But when it gets down to the nitty-gritty it seems the Big Lychee's officials are looking to the motherland for inspiration in how to conduct these things. The unlinkable SCMP reports:
The first contested election for chief executive may be a historic event, but journalists - who have an obvious role in keeping the public updated about the race - are finding the flow of information leaves much to be desired.It is as absurd with a hint of Big Brother. It's actually quite like the election itself. posted by Simon on 02.23.07 at 08:44 AM in the Hong Kong democracy/politics category.
