Issue Chief Executive Election
News Content Democratic Party, Civic Party and ADPL reached a tentative consensus yesterday, vowing to push forward the pre-election poll, a simulated civic CE election and win as many seats as possible in the election committee election. ‘The abolishment of Functional Constituency in 2016’ should be the campaign agenda. It was suggested by the Civic Party and agreed by the Democrats. And the three parties also agreed the pre-election will be held in Nov or Dec at its earliest.
Questions A Good move indeed. The campaign is getting its shape. But having said that, the campaign should be made as open, transparent and as possible.
