Abstract: We show that if a compact quantum semigroup satisfies certain weak cancellation laws, then it admits a Haar measure, and using this we show that it is a compact quantum group. Thus, we obtain a new characterization of a compact quantum group. We also give a necessary and sufficient algebraic condition for the Haar measure of a compact quantum group to be faithful, in the case that its coordinate $C^*$-algebra is exact. A representation is given for the linear dual of the Hopf $*$-algebra of a compact quantum group, and a functional calculus for unbounded linear functionals is derived.
