    • Former LSD chairman Wong Yuk-man and his ally, Albert Chan Wai-yip will meet their supporters this Sunday to discuss whether they should leave the party. They said a decision will be made after the meeting.
    • The disputes within two factions – one led by chairman Andrew To Kwan-hang and another by Wong have heightened recently.
    • The latest war of words erupted when Chan was accused by the party of refusing to attend caucus meetings since November. Chan said he did not refuse to attend the caucuses because party leaders had not set a meeting since November. But To issued another statement that he did not call caucus meetings because Wong and Chan boycotted them.

    Questions

    • If Wong and Chan decide to leave the party, it will put a grave challenge to the LSD leadership, as it will be left with one legislator. Its political power will be strongly affected.
    • Wong and Chan’s decision may also bring changes to the current relationship between LSD and other pan-democratic parties.
