Min Lee: Pro-Beijing lawmaker endorses Donald Tsang

From AP, via Tallahassee.com:

A pro-China lawmaker once critical of former colonial administrator Donald Tsang said Sunday she now backs him for Hong Kong’s top job – a sign that Beijing’s loyalists are closing ranks behind the territory’s former No. 2 leader. But lawmaker Choy So-yuk said she hopes Tsang will give up his British knighthood, which was bestowed for his service in Hong Kong’s colonial administration, Cable TV reported.

“His experience as a civil servant, ability to balance different interests, his political wisdom and so on makes me think he’s the most suitable of the three candidates,” Choy told reporters.
