(Corrects percentage of respondents asking for a suspension in second paragraph.)

Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang should be suspended while the anti-corruption bureau conducts an investigation into his trips with tycoons, the South China Morning Post said, citing a poll it commissioned.

About 43 percent of the 523 respondents said he should be suspended, the paper said, citing a poll conducted by the University of Hong Kong. Only 9 percent said he should resign immediately, the paper said.

The respondents were equally spilt on whether impeachment proceedings should start against Tsang, the paper said.
