Real estate investor to run for CE


HONG KONG - Real estate investor Wu Sai-tsuen announced on Thursday that he will run for Hong Kong's Chief Executive post in 2017.

The 57-year-old former member of the city's biggest political party - the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong - is the second person to join the race. On Oct 27, former Queen's Counsel Woo Kwok-hing announced his candidacy.

Wu is appealing to the public with his platform of "Respect, Justice and Fairness". Wu said he will bring "wealth, health and social security" to the people.

Wu believes he can win support from the religious, business, accountancy and legal sectors.

He said he hopes to elaborate on his beliefs and objectives to the city's Election Committee, Hong Kong's electoral college to select the CE. The members of next year's Election Committee will be elected in early December.

Wu was in the 2012 CE race but failed to secure enough support from members of the Election Committee for nomination. He also participated in a Legislative Council by-election in New Territories East.
