The Pan-establishment camp (Chinese: 親建制派 or 建制派) is a segment of Macanese society which supports the policies and views of the People's Republic of China and the Communist Party before and after the handover of Macau in 20 December 1999. The term can be used to identify politicians, political parties and individuals. Their rivals are the pan-democracy camp.


Prior to handover[edit]

Some of the political groups within the pan-establishment camp, such as the Union for Development have had a long history of following the directions of the People's Republic of China and of loyalty to the Communist Party of China since the colonial period. The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 sparked the Macau people's pro-democracy sentiments.


Pro-establishment members are united by the political ideology or economic policies of being closer to Beijing, as much out of pragmatism as of conviction, but vary on other issues within the context of Macau.

Members of the camp[edit]

Civil organisations, individual social activists, political parties, political groups and lawmakers who share a similar belief in democracy are all considered members of this camp. (number of Legislative Deputies shown in brackets)
