CY LEUNG & his 500M House at the Peak
Now CY Leung is in trouble - it is maybe exaggerated - I dont know - but it is welcome to all his critics - please read here: CY's critics seek no confidence motion 24-06-2012 The Labour Party says it aims to move an emergency motion of no-confidence against Chief Executive-elect, C.Y. Leung, amid controversy over illegal structures uncovered at his Peak residence. Mr Leung -- a surveyor -- has accepted full responsibility for the unauthorised building works, even though he also says he wasn't aware they were illegal. The Labour Party's chairman, lawmaker Lee Cheuk-yan, said he hoped Legco president Tsang Yok-sing will waive the 12-day notice requirement so the motion can be moved on Wednesday. Mr Tsang said he would study the reasons behind the motion of no confidence before deciding whether to approve it for Wednesday or not. Speaking after RTHK's City Forum, a vice-chairman of the Democratic Party, Emily Lau, said it was too early to say if her party would back the no-confidence motion -- but she could not rule it out. The party's central committee will hold an urgent meeting tomorrow night to discuss the issue and decide the next step. Legislator Miriam Lau, who heads the pro-establishment Liberal Party, said she would like to see an investigation first into whether Mr Leung had lied, before deciding what should come next. She said Mr Leung should be given a chance to explain fully.
