Accountancy (Chinese: 會計界) is a functional constituency seat in the Legislative Council of Hong Kong first created in 1988. In 2012, the constituency was composed of some 25 thousand certified public accountants as compared to 222 thousand citizens, on average, for geographical constituencies. As CPAs have the right to vote in both constituencies, their votes had 10 times the electoral value of those of ordinary citizens.[2][3]
