Comparative Politics Club Hong Kong Legislative Council field trip
2017-06-03

[SCIE web news, June 3, 2017] On Friday, SCIE Comparative Politics Club held a Hong Kong Legislative Council guided tour visit. This field trip gave club member a chance to take a glance of the Chamber that we used to see in television news and get deeper understanding towards the legislative rules and organisation structure.
Coincidently it was also the election day of Hong Kong’s Chief Executive which held every five years. On our coach and at the restaurant, the news got live coverage to the election at all time. Although the election was not held in the Government Headquarter, it still putted more meaning to our visit that day.

 3 pm, everyone arrived at the LegCo Complex on time. We first took a try on the imitate President Chair, including our teacher Richard Driscoll and the tour guide began our tour by introducing the founding, structure and legislation process in Hong Kong. While we were studying UK & US politics in the club class, we already had some knowledge about UK and US’s political institution. This visit brought us further information about parliamentary system and let us discover the similarities and differences between the political system of different places on site.
Then we took an elevator to the Chamber where we are all longing for. This is the core of the Legislative Council where legislator debates for social topics and laws and where acts or laws get voted and become legislations that affect Hong Kong or the whole China. In the Chamber our club members posed a lot of questions to the guide about council meetings.
        We then continued to the Memory Lane and Conference Room 2 to learn more about Hong Kong’s politic history knowledges from the exhibits.
 Finally, we took group photos together which marked the end of our trip.
