The upcoming subsector elections for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's Election Committee will create an administering team of patriots who will assume responsibility for local governance and integration into national development, experts said.

The Election Committee's subsector elections will take place on Sunday. This vote will be the first since the 13th National People's Congress, China's top legislature, adopted a decision in March on improving Hong Kong's electoral system in a bid to ensure "patriots administering Hong Kong".

Under the reform, the Election Committee was enlarged to 1,500 members representing five sectors and given more powers, extended from only electing the city's chief executive to also nominating Legislative Council members.
