Constitutional Development
The Basic Law provides that the ultimate aim is to elect the Chief Executive and Legislative Council by universal suffrage, in the light of the actual situation of Hong Kong and in accordance with the principle of gradual and orderly progress.

The Commission on Strategic Development, the Hong Kong SAR Government’s broad-based policy advisory group, is tasked with discussions on the principles and concepts relating to universal suffrage, and consequently the design of the systems to elect the Chief Executive and Legislative Council members by universal suffrage.
