The Political Platform Presentation and the Question and Answer Session of the Fourth-term Chief Executive Election took place at the Macao East Asian Games Dome on Saturday, hosted by Song Man Lei, president of the Electoral Affairs Committee for the Election of the Chief Executive.
Chui, the incumbent CE, presented his policy outline to the 265 members of the election committee.
Chui said his election program was based on the total implementation of the Basic Law of the Macao SAR of the People's Republic of China and the One Country, Two Systems principle.
If he wins the election, Chui said, the government will give priority to improving the people's livelihood under scientific decision-making.
Chui also said the development of Macao SAR is at the critical moment facing both opportunities and challenges.
The region benefits from fresh opportunities inspired by China's comprehensively deepening reform, said the CE, adding that, however, the shortage of land and human resources create inharmony.
According to the Basic Law of the Macao SAR, the chief executive shall be elected by a broadly representative Election Committee in accordance with the law and appointed by China's central government.
The election for the region's fourth-term chief executive will be launched on Aug 31.
