Top officials have their work cut out for them

Top officials have their work cut out for them

Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu and most of the SAR's 15 principal officials have not taken any days off in the first six months of their tenure, with the workaholics continuing to work over the Christmas holidays.
The chief executive is entitled to 22 days of annual leave, but Lee has not taken any.

Records show his predecessor, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, took 11 days off from 2017 to 2018, while, before her time, Leung Chun-ying took 126 days off on 16 occasions from 2012 to 2017.

Leung's longest break was during the Lunar New Year holiday in 2014, from January 29 to February 10 - 13 days.

Principal officials are also entitled to 22 days, half of which can be carried over.

Chief Secretary Eric Chan Kwok-ki and his deputy Warner Cheuk Wing-hing have not taken any days off.

But other press secretaries did not say whether financial chief Paul Chan Mo-po, justice head Paul Lam Ting-kwok, as well as Deputy Financial Secretary Michael Wong Wai-lun and Deputy Secretary for Justice Horace Cheung Kwok-kwan had taken any days off.

Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs Alice Mak Mei-kuen, innovation, technology and industry boss Sun Dong, security chief Chris Tang Ping-keung, development head Bernadette Linn Hon-ho, education chief Christine Choi Yuk-lin and Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang Kwok-wai have not taken any days off, while environment and ecology Tse Chin-wan will take time off.

Civil service chief Ingrid Yeung Ho Poi-yan, commerce and economic development boss Algernon Yau Ying-wah, labor and welfare chief Chris Sun Yuk-han, transport and logistics boss Lam Sai-hung, culture, sports and tourism chief Kevin Yeung Yun-hung, health chief Lo Chung-mau and housing boss Winnie Ho Wing-yin responded to inquiries by reiterating policies.
