The significance of improving Hong Kong’s electoral system
Following the systematic revisions to the methods for the selection of the Chief Executive and for the formation of the Legislative Council by the NPC and its Standing Committee, the Hong Kong SAR government acted quickly to enact local legislation, thereby creating a complete set of new election institutions that conform to the principle of “patriots administering Hong Kong” and the realities of the Hong Kong SAR. This set of institutions achieves the following results: First, it will help to better protect China’s national sovereignty, security, and development interests. Second, it will help promote good governance in Hong Kong. Third, it will help Hong Kong to integrate itself into China’s overall development landscape. Fourth, it will help develop a democratic system with Hong Kong characteristics.
