PoliticsEdit

Since winning its independence from the People's Republic of China the Hong Kong Free Enterprise Zone has been governed directly by the corporations that inhabit it. There are two main governing bodies in Hong Kong: the Board of Governors and the Executive Council.

Executive CouncilEdit

The Executive Council is effectively both the legislative and executive branches of Hong Kong Government. It is made up of eight Hong Kong citizens chosen to serve on the Council by the Board of Governors for eight year terms. Council members cannot be elected to consecutive terms. Every two years, two new slots open up on the Council and the Board of Governors replaces them in a closed door session. Every year the Council votes one member to be Chairman of the Council. There is no limit to how often a Councilmember can be the Chairman during his term. It is the Chairman's job to set the Council's agenda. Laws presented to the council are passed by a six vote majority.

Current Council (2070):Edit

  • Deng Sai-Kan, Chairman
  • Diego Mangabat
  • Yi Jing-Ze
  • William Wu
  • Mei Sterling
  • Tai Kong
  • Shan
  • Dr. David Tan
