  • Arthur Li's appointment is "a disaster": teachers
Priscilla Ng reports
About a dozen members of the Professional Teachers' Union have marched to the Chief Executive’s Office at Tamar to voice their opposition to Arthur Li’s appointment as the chairman of the University of Hong Kong's governing council.

They criticised the appointment as a "disaster".

The president of the union, Fung Wai-wah, accused CY Leung of not acting appropriately as he not only ignored public opinion in appointing Li, but also allegedly called on the business sector to stop donating to universities.

Fung also said Leung should consider relinquishing his chancellorship of the city's universities.
