This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the election of the chief executive (CE) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). It explains that the Election Committee (EC) is the child in Hong Kong's political system and that its birth in 1998 was a milestone as it embodied a system that gave Hong Kong people, for the first time, the power to select the highest political office holder in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). It suggests that this child is clearly in the process of growing up and that both nature and nurture will play a role in its future development.
