Gary Fan criticised his fellow party member who has quit the party on Wednesday and the city has a new MPF chief.
Split within Neo Democrats
Community Director of Neo Democrats Ventus Lau (劉穎匡) quit the party on Wednesday following the row he had with the party on whether the student societies should leave the Hong Kong Federation of Students (HKFS). Mr Lau is the convenor of CUHK Local Society which urges CUHK Student Society to quit HKFS. Neo Democrat lawmaker Gary Fan (范國威) criticised Lau’s abrupt resignation for impacting the party’s preparation in a District Election year. Lau was absent from the party’s caucus to explain his move before he resigned. In an interview with Cactus, Mr Fan described Lau’s move as a “set-up” and said he has no “political morality”.
