The HKSAR exercises a high degree of autonomy and enjoys executive, legislative and independent judicial power, including that of final adjudication. The Chief Executive heads the HKSAR, and the Executive Council, members of which are appointed by the Chief Executive, assists the Chief Executive in policy making. The legislature, which is constituted by election, enacts legislation, while the independent judiciary dispenses justice free from interference.
