Anson Chan na corrida
"Anson Chan, one of Hong Kong's most popular political figures, said Tuesday she plans to run for a recently vacated legislative seat to campaign for full democracy in this Chinese-ruled former British colony.
The 67-year-old Chan was viewed as a key figure in bridging Hong Kong's British and Chinese rule after the change in sovereignty in 1997, but she quit as the territory's No. 2 official — chief secretary for administration — in 2001. In recent years, she has emerged as a prominent democracy advocate".
