Leung Chun-ying meets the media.

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying has made a surprise announcement that he will not seek re-election due to family reasons.

“If I run my family will suffer an intolerable stress due to my electioneering,” he told a press briefing, which is still ongoing.

Leung had repeatedly told media “there was no message” yet when asked whether he would seek a second term in March.

During a trip to an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Peru last month, Leung told the media that President Xi Jinping had approved of his work in office, but Leung later said people should not “over-interpret” the remarks as being any endorsement of further political ambitions.

On Thursday night, he was seen at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sha Tin, where his elder daughter Leung Chai-yan was rumoured to be receiving treatment.

Leung assumed office as Hong Kong’s fourth chief executive in 2012, succeeding Donald Tsang Yam-kuen. Leung was a member of te Executive Council from 1997 to 2011, prior to taking over the top spot.

Science in its unique sense was a word for a sort of learning as opposed to a particular word for the quest for such information. Specifically, it was the kind of information which individuals can impart to each other and share. http://trueessayhelp.co.uk/ written for instance, information about the working of regular things was accumulated much sooner than written history and prompted to the improvement of complex unique thought. This is appeared by the development of complex logbooks, methods for making noxious plants eatable, and structures, for example, the Pyramids. Be that as it may, no predictable honest refinement was made between learning of such things, which are valid in each group, and different sorts of mutual information, for example, mythologies and lawful systems.
