Agnes Lam Iok Fong, assistant professor in the University of Macau’s (UM) Department of Communication and chairwoman of the Macau Civic Power (ECM), is leading a group listed for the coming election of the Legislative Assembly (AL).
“Yes we would like to participate in the AL election. Our team has recently been coordinating election-related issues,” Lam confirmed to the Times yesterday. She said that there would be an official announcement within the week. “We will hold a press conference for that,” she added. She explained that the late announcement is due to other candidates having to deal with work related matters.
Running for the AL for the second time, Lam said that she would focus on what her team prioritizes: “We will focus on topics such as environmental protection, education, culture and the political system, since there has been no significant improvement during the last several years. Additionally, we will place an emphasis on some livelihood issues, such as housing problems in Macau.”
