New Territories West, or simply "NT West", refers to the western part of New Territories in Hong Kong. It includes Tsuen Wan District, Kwai Tsing District, Tuen Mun District, Yuen Long District and Islands District. It is one of the geographical constituencies in the Legislative Council of Hong Kong, the largest geographical constituencies in Hong Kong. Although New Territories West is not the official administration name in Hong Kong (while New Territories is the official name), many government departments use it as one of main regions for administration divisions.

History[edit]

The constituency was formed since the 1998 legislative election, replacing a number of single-member constituencies in 1995. These were New Territories West and New Territories South in the 1991 election with dual-seat constituency dual vote system and New Territories South, New Territories West, New Territories Central, New Territories Southwest and New Territories Northwest in the 1995 election. From 1985 to 1991, the seats were elected by the electoral colleges composed of the members of the district boards and Regional Council.
