Defeated CE candidate Stanley Au endorses Ho Iat Seng

Stanley Au Chong-kit, who ran for Chief Executive in the 1999 election, has endorsed Ho Iat Seng, the first and so far only declared runner of the fifth Macau CE election. Au said that Ho is “a very good candidate” for the next CE. In Au’s opinion, Ho is an industrialist and has a shallow relationship with the real estate and gaming industries. Because of this, Au believes that Ho can better deal with Macau’s governance and corruption issues. He added that the election of Macau’s CE has always been an election for just one person.
