Former Legislative Council president Tsang Yok-sing on Monday rejected his party colleague's claim that John Tsang now represents the pan-democratic camp.

DAB member Tam Yiu-chung had earlier said that the former financial secretary now clearly represented the pan-democrats as 125 nominations out of the 160 he submitted came from them.

Tsang Yok-sing, who is also the former chairman of the DAB, said more pan-democrats are nominating John Tsang only because most of the pro-establishment's support has gone to Carrie Lam, who is widely seen as Beijing's top choice.

“Ask the pan-democrats themselves. I think they will definitely... at least most of them will tell you that John Tsang doesn’t represent them,” said Tsang Yok-sing.

“I think it’s no secret that at least part of the pan-democrats who have nominated John have done so because they want to see competition, not because they really support John.”
