    • Merger between ADPL and Democratic Party

    News Content

    • The Association for Democracy and People’s Livelihood had asked its active members on whether they should merge with the Democratic Party. Party’s vice-chairman Tam Kwok-kiu said yesterday they failed to reach an agreement on that.
    • Tam did not elaborate why an agreement could not be reached. He simply said it was technically impossible for them to merge with other pan-democratic group this year. They will then focus upon the forthcoming district council elections.

     

    Questions

    • The ADPL is facing intense competition within pan-democrat camp, as a new party, tentatively named the Labor party, will be formed soon. It will pose a direct threat to ADPL.
    • And Dr. Ma Ngok, the Chinese university’s political analyst said the ADPL might lose seats to Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong on the forthcoming district council elections.
