Former Chief Executive and Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Liang Zhenying, was interviewed by Reuters today (3rd). When asked whether he would not rule out running for the Chief Executive again, Liang Zhenying said, "I will do everything I can to serve Hong Kong and serve the country."

In the 2012 chief executive election, Liang Zhenying was elected chief executive with 689 votes. During his tenure, incidents such as anti-state religion incidents, umbrella movements, and Mong Kok riots occurred.

Until December 9, 2016, Liang Zhenying announced that due to family reasons, he had given up seeking re-election, and his term of office would end on June 30, 2017.

He was later elected as the vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, and from time to time expressed opinions on social issues on the Internet.

In November last year, when Leung Chun-ying was interviewed by the Hong Kong and Taiwan program "Viewpoint 31", he was asked if he would run for the Chief Executive again. He pointed out: "Currently none."

He once said that he has no intention to elect the Chief Executive and changed his statement after 4 months

Until January this year, when Liang Zhenying accepted an interview with "Hong Kong 01", he proposed that the Chief Executive could be selected through negotiation.

He emphasized that the Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law clearly stated that the Chief Executive can be selected by election or through consultations, and appointed by the central government. "If the Chief Executive is announced tomorrow instead of through consultations, the British cannot say that we violated the China There is no need to amend the Basic Law and the NPC's interpretation of the "British Joint Declaration."

Four months later, when Liang Zhenying was interviewed by Reuters, he was asked whether he would not rule out the election of the chief executive. He said, "I will do everything I can to serve Hong Kong and serve the country."

Liang Zhenying said that the chief executive of Hong Kong has two requirements, one is a Chinese citizen who is 40 years old or above, and the other is to live in Hong Kong for more than 20 years. "So, I am one of the millions of people in Hong Kong who are eligible to stand for election.
