Chief Executive-elect appeals to talents to join political team

     The Chief Executive-elect, Mr C Y Leung, today (May 17) appealed to talents who aspire to join the political team of the next-term Government as an Under Secretary or a Political Assistant to submit their applications to the Chief Executive-elect's Office by the end of the month.

     "I expect members of my political team to be of vision, committed and competent, and that includes competency in political work. They should be able to engage members of the public and stakeholders, explain to them various policies and solicit their support through communication and interaction," Mr Leung said.

     "I specifically would like to encourage young people who want to pursue a career in politics to come forward. This will enable Hong Kong to build a reserve of talents for the long-term development of the accountability system."

     A five-member selection committee, to be chaired by the Chief Executive-elect, will be responsible for the preliminary selection of suitable candidates. Members of the committee comprise the Chairman of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, Mr Anthony Wu Ting-yuk; the Deputy Chairman of the Council of Lingnan University, Ms Sophia Kao Ching-chi; the Chairman of the Kwun Tong District Council, Mr Bunny Chan Chung-bun; and the Head of the Chief Executive-elect's Office, Mrs Fanny Law Fan Chiu-fun. After the appointments of the Principal Officials are announced, relevant Secretaries of Department, Deputy Secretaries of Department and Directors of Bureau will take part in the next round of selection in order to put the team together.

     People who meet the aforementioned criteria are required to submit their personal particulars, curriculum vitae and preference for the post and bureau, together with a short essay on views on the future development of Hong Kong, by email to or by mail addressed to the Chief Executive-elect's Office, 12/F, West Wing, Central Government Offices, Lower Albert Road, Central, by May 31. Please specify "Job application" on the envelope.
