District Governance

The Government announced proposals on improving governance at the district level in May 2023, so to reform the District Councils (DCs) and strengthen the district governance structure. With the full support from the Legislative Council (LegCo), the District Councils (Amendment) Bill 2023 was passed in July 2023 and the District Councils (Amendment) Ordinance 2023 was published in the Gazette and came into effect on 10 July 2023.

The reformed DCs shall have their positioning reverted to being district advisory and service bodies which are not organs of political power under the Basic Law, and accord top priority to national security, fully implement the principle of “patriots administering Hong Kong” and fully manifest executive-led governance, assist the Government in enhancing the efficacy of district governance, so to enhance people’s sense of achievement and satisfaction. More details could be found in the LegCo Brief on “Improving Governance at the District Level”.
