‘That’s irresponsible’: Hong Kong’s top Anglican rejects calls to give up Christian seats on body electing city’s chief executive

From Hong Kong-

Protestants must not give up their 10 seats on the body that could decide Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying’s re-election if he runs next year, the archbishop of the Hong Kong Anglican Church has said, rejecting a call to boycott the influential committee.

In a rare interview, his second since taking over the helm at the church in 2007, the Most Reverend Paul Kwong told the Post that, contrary to accusations, he was not a government yes-man. He claimed he had, behind closed doors, urged officials to communicate with different sectors and explain their policies more clearly and frequently.

Kwong declined to say if he supported Leung’s re-election, but he said he believed the chief executive “loves Hong Kong”.
