    Leaders not in a party cannot govern effectively in an executive-led system which Hong Kong has. Without backing by a party, the CE would be at odds with the legislature so little would get done. If he or she were a member of a political party, the CE has backing by group with a clear manifesto, so the public has an idea of the political slant that he or she has – and by being voted in by universal suffrage – we would also not have to have public consultations on everything – and legislation would likely to get passed.

    Past CEs were almost in a de facto party already (e.g., the DAB, Liberal party) – we could tell this by their comments as well that they are not particularly non-partisan. Let’s not pretend that the CE is neutral in Hong Kong even now. However, independent candidates should not be legally barred from running for the top job as well as it is against democratic values. To enhance Hong Kong’s long term governability and as an essential element of Hong Kong’s ultimate electoral arrangements, the legal requirement that the Chief Executive has no political party affiliation must be lifted.

    除了特區,請問有那些地方,會不容許市長/省長/州長/總理/總統是政黨成員?!!行政長官絕對可以是政黨成員。
