Recently, Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kam facing an increasing criticism by the public as he had favoured an in-law’s light-bulb business with his cash coupon proposal to encourage the use of energy-saving bulbs and he had helped his sister-in-law to get compensation over Lehman Brothers minibonds three months earlier than the other victims. Although numerous criticisms made on him, he said that he did not lose any sleep over criticism. Alternatively, he sleeps very well. He said this because he think that all the Hong Kong residents have their right to give their
expressions and he accepts all of the advice.
In fact, I am a bit disappointed with the behaviour of the Chief Executive. Before the occurrence of these issues, I am really impressed by his care on the public and at that time, I think he is my idol and I have a dream to follow his footstep. But now, the image of the Chief Executive have totally changed in my mind that I think he is too unjust. To be the role of leader, the most important thing is that he must be scrupulous in separating public from private interests.
Now, the light-bulb cash coupon proposal is failed and these two issues greatly affect and lower the level of satisfaction to the Chief Executive. So, Tsang should work harder to redeem himself after he made above mistakes. Also, I think he should have a review to what he has done over the past few months and improve the way to handle problems.
