DAB’s Horace Cheung likely to be picked as Hong Kong’s deputy justice chief
Incoming Hong Kong leader John Lee’s cabinet has been finalised, sources suggest.
Horace Cheung Kwok-kwan, vice-chairman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong (DAB) and an Executive Council member, is likely to take up the new post of deputy secretary for justice in the next administration, the Post has learned.
Multiple sources also suggested incoming chief executive John Lee Ka-chiu’s cabinet had been finalised on Saturday, with Permanent Secretary for Security Carol Yip Man-kuen standing a high chance of becoming director of his office.
On his potential appointment, Cheung said: “I have no comments on this for now, but the DAB hopes the next administration will be formed as soon as possible and start serving Hong Kong citizens from July 1.”
