    Jasper Tsang - guy is too smart to take that job.
    Regina Ip - pitchforks, torches, government house on fire and PLA deployed. Worst outcome possible.
    What happened to that Starry Lee lady? Loyalist chair, close to Jasper, Non-civil service career - don't think I've seen her in the news at all the last six months. Which might be exactly what a candidate needs to be viable?

    Starry Lee is a possibility.

    But she needs to be a cabinet secretary first for a few years, eg Secretary for Home Affairs, Secretary for Financial Services.

    When she reaches the age of about 60, it is likely she will become chief executive..

    The postion of the CE is a poison chalice under the current governance system. A more able CE might be able to muddle through without triggering mass protests, but his hands are still tied on being able to do anything about political reforms (requiring Beijing's approval) or make drastic steps on livelihood issues like housing (requiring approval from vested interest).

    The vested interests in Legco needed tackling. Either by by-passing Legco (seems to be the trend) or forcing functional constituencies to be representative of the industry rather than the industry owners.

    He might be marginally better than Lam, but hardly the improvement that HK needs. He was a Exco member that said nothing about the extradition bill. He may just be as clueless to HK public sentiment as Lam.

    He spouts the party line in a slicker (slimier) way. Clearly no better for Hong Kong but may be able to push through authoritarian reforms rather than failing to ram them through as per the current incumbent.

    In 2010 Lee refused to sign a petition to help ban import of highly endangered Atlantic bluefin tuna to Hong Kong, saying that her daughter loves sashimi and she does not want her daughter to get mad at her.
