Chim Pui-chung (born 1946, Chaozhou, Guangdong, China) is a member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong (Legco), representing the Financial Services Functional Constituency. He is director of several companies.[1]

Political career[edit]

Chim was a legislative councillor from 1991 until he was jailed for conspiring to forge documents in 1998, whereupon he was impeached and disqualified as a legislator by Legco.[2][3] He was released from prison in 1999. In 2004, he was re-elected unopposed as legislative councillor for the financial services constituency. In 2008 he was again elected.[4]

In 2005, he was an unsuccessful candidate in the Hong Kong Chief Executive election, receiving only 21 nominations from the Election Committee, less than the minimum requirement of 100.[5] As a result, Donald Tsang was declared the uncontested winner.[6]
