Beijing is anxious to ensure Hong Kong’s leadership race will produce a loyal chief executive capable of fostering unity and quashing any signs of infighting among various sectors, without distracting the city’s attention from fighting the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, analysts have said.⁠

It was not unexpected for Chief Secretary John Lee Ka-chiu to be tipped as a strong contender for the May 8 election, they added, as the No 2 official was relatively receptive to pro-establishment legislators’ opinion on public initiatives and yet could be tough on pushing through long-term policies unpopular with some quarters but important for the city.⁠

“Lee is relatively less knowledgeable on some policy areas, but that may well become his strength … Beijing might also value his absolute loyalty as a seasoned police officer too,” a former pro-establishment lawmaker said.⁠

Since Sunday, Lee has been touted by multiple sources as the front runner in the leadership race, sidelining other potential hopefuls such as Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po, former chief executive Leung Chun-ying and New People’s Party chairwoman Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee.⁠
