Artucle 45 of Hong Kong’s Basic Law or mini-constitution states — the ultimate aim is the selection of the Chief Executive by universal suffrage upon nomination by a broadly representative nominating committee in accordance with democratic procedures. In 2007, an amendment came in to apply this to the 2017 election. At no stage did it suggest there should be an election without the candidates being approved by a committee. The protestors are arguing for an election that conforms to ‘international standards’. Given the procedural complexities and different methods in which Americans choose their presidents, the British their prime ministers and Londoners their mayors, is there a detailed document laying out exactly what amendment is needed to the Basic Law and how Hong Kong people want to elect their next chief executive? And if there, could someone let me know the link?
