The Professionals Guild met with chief executive-elect Carrie Lam to express their expectations for the new government.

During the meeting, Kenneth raised several issues regarding governance, including the Central Policy Unit's role in the government. Carrie Lam stated that the Central Policy Unit will not have a part in making appointments in government advisory and statutory bodies, and will instead help organising cross-departmental efforts.

Kenneth also proposed moving the annual policy address earlier to October, which was the case before the current government. This will allow the public and legislators more time and space to scrutinise the Government's policies. Carrie Lam seemed to respond positively to the suggestion.

While the meeting was a constructive first step to rebuilding ties between the legislative and executive branches, Kenneth and the Professionals Guild will continue to monitor the new government's every action.

專業議政七位議員同候任特首林鄭月娥會面,提出施政期望。

會面期間Kenneth向林太提出幾項管治質素問題,包括中央政策組於政府內的角色。林太表示,中央政策組不會再在政府諮詢架構及組織的委任有任何角色,將來只會協助統籌跨部門工作,例如外國企業到香港投資,就會有跨部門嘅政策組負責處理。

Kenneth亦向林鄭月娥議將施政報告由現時的一月提前到以往慣常的十月發布,讓大眾及立法會議員有足夠時間及空間向政府提出建議及有效監察政府施政,林太對此有正面的回應。

對於今次會面,我認為是修補行政立法撕裂的好開始,但將會繼續做好監察角色,聽其言而觀其行。
