SCMP:Approval ratings of finance chiefs drop

12 Nov 2008

Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah and Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Chan Ka-keung, key officials handling policies relating to the financial meltdown and the Lehman Brothers minibonds saga, have both suffered significant falls in their approval ratings. In the latest University of Hong Kong survey on the popularity of top government officials Professor Chan’s approval rate fell by 8 percentage points last week, down from 33 per cent early last month, the most significant drop in approval ratings when compared with the other 11 ministers. Mr Tsang’s approval rating dropped by 5 percentage points, down from 41per cent early last month.

Has anyone done similar surveys here? Won't be surprised if the ratings will be much worse.

Maybe it's only the gahmen themselves that think they are the best.

Ask a question

Would you allow a survey on yourself if you know you MIGHT NOT do well on that survey

Enough said.

Tricky issue.

Could be the FIRST poll. AND the LAST poll ever here.

Theres the thing with the Little Red Dot, heck, Asia in general.

Whats not spoken doesnt REALLY mean its NOT spoken. Its just UNDERSTOODED.

Blog owner decides.

Yes ! Let us have a poll on the ratings of our ministers in this blog !! With so many investors (their families and friends) disappointed with the response of our gahmen on this saga, bet you the ratings will be even lower than that of HK's !
