    One Country Two Systems Principle

    • CE hit back at Wang's criticism

    News Content

    • After Wang Guangya, director of the State Council's Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office criticized the city's civil servant for failure to take command, Chief Executive Donald Tsang hit back by stating that under 'one country, two systems' principle, Hong Kong people are learning to be their own boss. And he also defended that his administration has been making short, medium and long-terms plan for Hong Kong.
    • But he declined to respond if Wang's comment was pointing at him or his governing team.
    • Tsang said public participation was important in the process of policy formulation, so it might take longer to foster consensus in Hong Kong's society.
    • Chairman of the Senior Government Officers Association, Mr. So Ping-chi, said Tsang's response was missing the point: 'General civil servants understand Wang was not criticizing them, but the leadership.

    Questions

    • It is politically wrong for Tsang to shift the blame. The Hong Kong government doesn't want to do any proper public engagement.
    • The government failed to make medium or long-term planning for Hong Kong. It is vision-less, only reacts upon pressure.
    • Tsang should have reflected upon himself and his governance.
