Jose Coutinho, president of the Macau Civil Servants Association, yesterday said the city had paid a heavy price for businesspeople running Macau over the past nine years.

"The next chief executive should be a person with over 10 years of civil service experience and legal expertise," said Mr Coutinho, who is also a legislator. "Only such a person can put heart and soul into working for the public."
Macau Chief Executive Edmund Ho Hau-wah, who will step down in December next year, begins a two-day trip to Beijing today to meet state leaders and report on his work.
The transition of power in Macau is expected to feature in the discussions, with the city electing his replacement next summer.
Mr Coutinho said a lack of accountability for high officials and the model of "businesspeople running Macau" had led to corruption, citing the graft scandal involving former public works minister Ao Man-long, who was found with illegal income worth HK$800 million.
The association is known for defending the interests of low-ranking government workers. In September, it led about 1,000 civil servants in the first protest in Macau by government employees, demanding better pay and a fair promotion system.
Mr Coutinho said morale among lower-ranking civil servants had hit rock bottom and called for changes. "Their road ahead is unclear and the civil servants have little confidence in the future," he said.
The Ao scandal weakened people's trust in the administration, after a trial in the Court of Final Appeal found the former official and his friends rode roughshod over guidelines laid down for the administration, overruling the rating of bids for public projects, putting unqualified people in government jobs, changing the city's alignment rules to suit developers and leaking the government's infrastructure plans.
Ao was jailed for 27 years in January on 57 counts of bribe-taking, money laundering, abuse of power and other charges.

Macau legislators like Jose Coutinho say the May Day clash signaled deep-seated resentment towards the government for failing to redistribute wealth fairly to poorer parts of society.
"It's the culmination of abuse of power that has been running since after the handover," said Coutinho, president of the Macau Civil Servants' Union, which joined in last week's march.
"Abuse of power, not applying the rule of law, and poor transparency has resulted in heavy corruption at the highest level," Coutinho added.
