Chung Wan (Chinese: 中環) is one of the 15 constituencies in the Central and Western District of Hong Kong, currently represented in the Central and Western District Council by Hui Chi-fung of the Democratic Party.

The constituency loosely covers the Central District with the estimated population of 18,529.[2] Chung Wan is both the Cantonese transliteration of the Chinese name and an alternative English name for Central District.

Boundaries[edit]

The Chung Wan constituency covers most of Central District and Admiralty, as well as the portion of Sheung Wan east of Cleverly Street and Ladder Street. The Sheung Wan, Central, Hong Kong and Admiralty stations of MTR are within the boundaries of the Chung Wan constituency.

District Council constituencies bordering Chung Wan includes Mid Levels East, Peak, Sheung Wan and Tung Wah within the same district, as well as Tai Fat Hau of Wan Chai District.[3][4]

Councillors represented[edit]

The seat is currently held by Ted HUI Chi-fung of the Democratic Party. He replaced YUEN Bun-keung, a founding member of the party who had been holding the seat since 1986, in the 2011 District Council elections, as Yuen refused to seek another term of office. Yuen died in the following year.
