向曾特首追問梁展文事件、雙普選及油價問題

***我從座位中拍攝。

在昨日於禮頓山社區會堂舉行的地區行政諮詢會上,我被抽中第一個發言,並就梁展文事件、雙普選及油價問題向特首追問。特首並沒有就雙普選的問題回應,亦指在不同場合上已就梁展文事件回應,對於國際油價,他表示已有措施推行中,他的回答實在令人失望,下為報章摘要﹕

處理梁展文事件特首認有瑕疵 
 

【本報訊】特首曾蔭權民望持續插水,有學者指梁展文事件處理失當是其中一個主要因素。曾蔭權昨晚出席施政報告諮詢會時承認,政府對事件的處理手法有「瑕疵」,有檢討必要。曾蔭權昨晚到銅鑼灣禮頓山社區會堂,出席閉門的施政報告諮詢會。灣仔區議員麥國風會後透露,他要求曾回應梁展文事件,但特首以「好多場合已經講過」為由拒絕,當其他人繼續追問,特首才承認政府處理此事的手法有「瑕疵」,有檢討必要。

不回應雙普選問題

麥又提出,曾蔭權參選特首時稱,會就2012年雙普選問題「玩鋪勁」,但結果任內對普選進程毫無建樹,要求特首在施政報告再交代。不過,麥國風說特首不肯回應此問題:「佢會後經過我身邊,同其他人握完手後,專登唔望我一眼,佢太小器啦。」曾蔭權在會前稱,未來施政會關注經濟、政治及民生政策;早前推出的紓緩通脹措施,只是短暫性,會研究其他的解決方法。另外,會就醫療融資、競爭法及最低工資等項目進行深入研究。政府又會為了達致2017及2020雙普選,研究在2012年選舉作出相應調動。

指處理「梁展文事件」有小問題

曾蔭權允促十大基建上馬 
 

 
……獲邀出席會議的社民連灣仔區議員麥國風表示,自己是會上唯一問及政制和梁展文事件的人士,包括要求政府就梁展文事件作出調查,以及解釋何以沒有兌現競選承諾在政制上「玩鋪勁」。

他指出,曾蔭權最初表示不會再回應梁展文事件,後在陳健民建議應作檢討時承認,政府處理事件時未盡完善,但就沒有再回應雙普選問題。

Confidence in government must be restored, Tsang says  

 
It was vital for the government to  regain Hongkongers’ confidence in its policy work, Donald Tsang Yam-kuen said yesterday, two days after a survey revealed his approval ratings had hit a new low.

Speaking before a consultation session last night with district councillors about his October policy address, the chief executive said the speech would touch on people’s confidence in the government.

Following several recent incidents, I feel there is a need to enhance people’s confidence in the government and our values. I believe this will be touched on in the address, Mr Tsang said, without saying which incidents he was referring to.

After the controversial approval of ex-housing chief Leung Chin-man’s job with a property developer, an opinion poll showed on Tuesday that more people disapproved than approved of the chief executive’s performance – for the first time since he took up the post in 2005.

Mr Tsang did not respond when asked after the session if the government was facing a crisis.

During the one-hour, closed-door session, Wan Chai district councillor Michael Mak Kwok-fung, of the League of Social Democrats, asked Mr Tsang if he would pledge to launch an investigation into Mr Leung’s case.

Mr Tsang replied that he had explained the matter earlier and refused further comment, Mr Mak said.

City University political analyst James Sung Lap-kung said that, judging by Mr Tsang’s words, the public could expect a reform of the accountability system, the system for assessing post-retirement employment of senior officials, and the foreign domestic helpers levy.

These are the three unavoidable issues that he has to give an explanation for. These are what the public are most upset about, Dr Sung said.

He said Mr Tsang now seemed to realise that his drop in the ratings was no anomaly, but represented an accumulation of Hongkongers’ sentiment that would continue to fall unless he responded to recent events. In the poll, 39 per cent of respondents approved of Mr Tsang’s performance and 41 per cent disapproved.

Beijing will also be very concerned, Dr Sung said. The public lost confidence in a businessman [former chief executive Tung Chee-hwa] and now a civil servant. Who can be the next chief executive without inheriting this time bomb?

Chan Kin-man, a sociologist at Chinese University and the host of the consultation session, said the chief executive also pledged to implement 10 major infrastructure projects during his term of service.

Mr Tsang also emphasised the importance of getting support from the Legislative Council to smooth the implementation of projects.
