The Second Legislative Council of Hong Kong was the meeting of the legislative branch of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. The membership of the LegCo is based on the 2000 election. The term of the session was from 1 October 2000 to 30 September 2004, during the latter half of the first term of the Tung Chee-hwa's administration and the most of the Tung's second term in office. The pro-democratic Democratic Party remained the largest party with 13 seats. Notable newcomers to the Legislative Council included Wong Sing-chi, Michael Mak, Li Fung-ying, Lo Wing-lok, Abraham Shek, Tommy Cheung and Audrey Eu who won the seat vacated by Gary Cheng in the Hong Kong Island by-election, 2000.

Major events[edit]

  • September 2002–July 2003: The government released its proposals for the anti-subversion law and sparked enormous criticisms from the society. The Hong Kong July 1 marches recorded more than five millions, the largest protest since the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. Liberal Party's chairman James Tien resigned from the Executive Council and would have party members vote for a postponement. As a result, the government withdrew the bill in later July due to insufficient votes to pass the law.

Major legislation[edit]

Enacted[edit]

Proposed[edit]

National Security (Legislative Provisions) Bill[edit]

In November 2002, the anti-subversion National Security (Legislative Provisions) Bill to amend the Crimes Ordinance, the Official Secrets Ordinance and the Societies Ordinance pursuant to the obligation imposed by Article 23 of the Basic Law of the Hong Kong was introduced to the Legislative Council. It is the cause of considerable controversy and division in Hong Kong. Protests against the bill resulted in a massive demonstration on 1 July 2003. In the aftermath, the National Security (Legislative Provisions) Bill was withdrawn after it became clear that it would not get the necessary support from the Legislative Council for it to be passed. The bill was then shelved indefinitely.
