Members of the Selection Committee 16 December 1996 Hong Kong Special Administrative Region

Dear Members,

Further to my letter of 12 December 1996 declaring my candidacy for a seat in the Provisional Legislature, I would like to supplement my earlier letter, written in Chinese, with this English version.

The 21st century Hong Kong is going to ride through a momentous time. We will face unprecedented challenges while trying to implement the 'one country, two systems' philosophy. As a concerned member of this community in trying times, I wish to continue my efforts in the betterment of Hong Kong. Towards this end, I have, in my discreet sort of way, worked dedicatedly in the community for many years. My attached track record of community services will hopefully bear clear testimony to this effect.

If elected to the Provisional Legislature, it is my intention to continue my work as an elected Legislative Councillor in a consistent manner, which is to: -

* face the future with a positive attitude and always respond to new situations with concrete and constructive plan of actions; * foster trust of the community in our Government through helping the Administration to increase its openness and to stay graft-free; * encourage the community to tolerate different shades of political views and to respect each other's rights to hold independent views; * always express my own ideas sincerely, rationally and with a balanced interests of the whole country at heart.

I hope that you would share and support my modest efforts by voting for 'Eric Li Ka-cheung' to represent the accountants and the Hong Kong people on the 21 December 1996.

With warm Season's Greetings,

Yours sincerely,

Eric Li Ka-cheung Candidate for the Provisional Legislature
