22 Feb – Netizens in a forum have sounded out their hopes for Hong Kong's multi-talented star Andy Lau to register himself to be in the running for the position of Hong Kong's Chief Executive.
The 51-year-old film producer is being backed by various artistes via Twitter with their desire to see him bring Hong Kong to high grandeur.
Although, sources has revealed that there are some citizens of Hong Kong that are not so supportive of this movement as they are still questioning Andy's integrity – as he had kept his marriage to his Malaysian wife, Carol Choo, in the dark for a long period of time before the media broke out the news.
The Tai Po-born hunk has responded that he has no interest in the post whatsoever as he is looking forward to the arrival of his first child with his former-beauty-queen wife, Carol – who is expected to deliver in June.
"HK citizens need not pay taxes for 20 years, and there will be free education, medical, housing for life and benefits for the elderly." were the lines spoken by Andy who plays the Chief Executive of Hong Kong in 2046 at the end of "Golden Chicken 2", to which many viewers were pleased by the star's perfect impersonation of a Chief Executive.
The position currently seeks for future candidacy as the post's prior hopeful candidate Henry Tang Ying-Wen was caught in a scandal involving his wife and an illegal deal of extending the basement of a building.
The term of current Chief Executive of the Special Administrative Region Donald Tsang Yam-Kuen will end on 30 June.
