Mixed response to Leung work report

Supporters applauded him for his proactive approach while members of the pro-democracy camp said he congratulated himself for non-achievements. 

Chief executive Leung Chun-ying drew the spectrum of responses after he reported on his administration’s work over the last year, citing success in holding down home price rises and the introduction of a poverty line, Metro Hong Kong reported Wednesday.

Members from the pro-democracy camp said the athletic titles, the revamp of a website for public libraries, and the staging of a dinosaur exhibition at the Hong Kong Science Museum that Leung referred to in his report did not count as achievements.

The report did no mention of big issues such as free-to-air television licences, standard work hours, and a campaign proposal to lower the hedging portions within Mandatory Provident Funds, Metro Hong Kong said.

According to the latest survey by the University of Hong Kong’s Public Opinion Programme, 26 percent of people support Leung while 57 percent oppose him.
