LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL DECISION TREE

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR DEMOCRACY?
You are about to design your own model of universal suffrage for Hong Kong’s Legislative Council. In reality this cannot take place earlier than the year 2020, as the Standing Committee of the National Peoples’ Congress has decided that Hong Kong’s Chief Executive must be elected by universal suffrage before its legislators are so elected.

Design Democracy Hong Kong has developed a decision tree that simulates the kinds of questions the government will need to address in developing a system of universal suffrage for the legislature. Before you start your design process, you may want to read more about Hong Kong’s political system or the electoral systems of other countries. Some of this reference material can be accessed in the LEARN section of this website.

The decision tree is divided into four parts and each part may have more than one question. If you are unsure or undecided about a particular question, you are allowed to skip it. Each question also provides space for you to elaborate upon your answer. There is no time limit to completing the decision tree, so you can take as long as you like. However, data is saved only after you have completed all of the questions and submitted your model. It does not save as you go along. After you have completed your model, you will be asked to provide your name, email address and some optional demographic information. Only your name will be published to indicate the authorship of your model. Following the submission of your model, you will immediately be able to see how other designers answered each question and how your model compares to theirs.
