Hong Kong Dissatisfaction Grows Ahead of Election, Survey Finds

Dissatisfaction with the way Hong Kong’s government deals with China rose to the highest level in eight years ahead of an election on Sept. 9 for the city’s legislature, according to a survey by the Hong Kong Transition Project.

The level of dissatisfaction climbed to 48 percent, according to the survey of 1,309 people conducted last month. That’s the highest level since the 51 percent in July 2004, when Hong Kong was recovering from the severe acute respiratory syndrome epidemic, according to the survey.

The introduction by Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying’s administration of patriotism classes about China has drawn nightly protests at the government headquarters in Hong Kong, while a planned relaxation of visa procedures for mainland visitors has been criticized by a range of people including James Tien, head of the tourism board, on concerns that the city may not have the capacity to handle the influx.

“I don’t think there is any question about the loser -- that’s going to be C.Y. Leung,” Michael DeGolyer, director of the Hong Kong Transition Project, said at a luncheon today.
