Media entrepreneur Ricky Wong Wai-kay announced that he is running in the Legislative Council elections in September to represent the Hong Kong Island geographical constituency.
Speaking on Facebook live on Monday, the chairman of Hong Kong Television Network said his aim is to prevent Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying from securing a second term, broadcaster RTHK reports.
He said he hopes to do that by forming an alliance with at least half of the 70 Legco members.
He said he could work with both pro-democracy and pro-Beijing lawmakers, as long as they all believe that Leung should not be allowed to get a second term.
Wong said he has written a 100-page political manifesto which can be downloaded from his website.
He also said he doesn’t have a political party to support him, which is why he is urging people to volunteer for his campaign.
