Public opinion polls dissatisfied? (24 Aug 2000)


Robert Chung polling controversy has expanded from a small newspaper column to headline news. The case includes a multi-million-dollar inquiry into the question of whether or not Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa, has exerted pressure to interfere with Chung's public opinion poll through Andrew Lo Cheung-on, Tung's aide, Cheng Yiu-chung (Vice Chancellor, University of Hong Kong), and Wong Siu-lun (Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of Hong Kong). testimonies of Cheng Kai-ming (Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of Hong Kong) and Felice Mak-Lieh (Head, Department of Psychiatry, University of Hong Kong) both support Chung's. But Tung, Lo, Cheng and Wong all strictly deny the accusations against them. Ying Chan (Director, Journalism and Media Studies Centre) declares that the case suggests the presence of a culture of subservience within the community, and it remains a puzzle and disappointment to the public.
