本次講座主要探討基於香港特別行政區基本法第四章規定的香港特別行政區管治機構及其相互關係而形成香港特別行政區的政治體制,即“一國兩制”下以行政長官為核心的行政主導,包含著立法與行政相互制衡、相互配合以及司法獨立等特徵。 本講座將重點討論基於行政長官的「雙首長」地位帶來的管治中的困難與問題,以及完善有關行政長官負責制的機制對策,以充分發揮行政長官的應有功能。
In this talk, we will explore the political system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), which has been established based on Chapter 4 of the Hong Kong Basic Law. Chapter 4 outlines the governing institutions of the HKSAR and their interrelationships. The HKSAR’s political system is defined by administrative leadership under the “one country, two systems” principle, with the Chief Executive at its core. It also includes features such as checks and balances between legislative and administrative branches, their mutual cooperation, and judicial independence. The lecture will primarily focus on the challenges and issues in governance arising from the “dual-heads” status of the Chief Executive. Additionally, we will discuss institutional measures aimed at enhancing the Chief Executive’s accountability system, ultimately enabling the Chief Executive to effectively fulfill their intended functions.
