This chapter explores the politics of selecting Hong Kong members of the Tenth National People's Congress (NPC) as well as the role of the Liaison Officer in the second election of NPC deputies. As little research has been done on the NPC election processes, this chapter focuses on the elections held for the Hong Kong Members of the NPC as these show the uniqueness of the mainland-style Chinese election in the politically pluralistic setting of Hong Kong. The chapter also discusses the implications of the HKSAR NPC elections for Taiwan.
