Cloee Chao, president of the New Macau Gaming Professionals Association, has pledged to run in the upcoming legislative election, submitting her nomination list on Friday, according to TDM Radio news.
The gaming activist claims her participation in this year’s Legislative Assembly (AL) election is to strive for a Union Law and for benefits for gaming workers.
The group proposed eight individuals to run in this year’s election, with the order of nominees to be determined at a later stage.
In response to recent reports revealing that ‘red packets’ were being given out in a group chat by the association on Wechat in order to ask for nominations, Chao stated that the quantities in the packets was low, MOP1 or less being given out in each case.
The president argued that the report misrepresented the facts in order to give a false impression of bribery, claiming the group will lodge a complaint with the Electoral Commission.
Meanwhile, speaking to Business Daily, Angela Leong On Kei, legislator and executive director of Macau casino operator SJM Holdings Ltd., commented that “everyone has the right to get involved in politics and the election”.
Legislator Melinda Chan Mei Yi, with her spouse David Chow Kam Fai, the co-chairman and chief executive officer of Macau Legend Development, said she is in fact hoping that more people will take part in this election.
“[With more people to run in the election], the sense of democracy is getting more significant and more people supporting the election is a good thing,” said legislator Chan.
