Support for the democratization of Hong Kong has been an element of U.S. foreign policy for over 17 years. The democratization of Hong Kong is also enshrined in the Basic Law, Hong Kong’s quasi-constitution that was passed by China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) prior to China’s resumption of sovereignty over the ex-British colony on July 1, 1997. The Basic Law stipulates that the “ultimate aim” is the selection of Hong Kong’s Chief Executive and the members of its Legislative Council (Legco) by “universal suffrage.” However, it does not designate a specific date by which this goal is to be achieved. On Nov. 18, 2009, Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen released the government’s long-awaited “consultation document” on possible reforms for the city’s next Chief Executive and Legislative Council (Legco) elections to be held in 2012. Contents of this report: (I) Overview; (II) Historical Background: The Basic Law and Hong Kong Elections; The Proposed Reforms of 2005; The Decision of Dec. 2007; (III) The 2008 Legco Elections; (IV) The 2012 Elections; (V) The Consultation Document; (VI) The Initial Response; (VII) Implications of the Consultation Document; (VIII) Issues for Congress. Tables.
