This chapter reviews the political landscape in Hong Kong after the July 1 rally of 2003, which has been characterized by greater intervention of the Central People's Government in Hong Kong's democratization such as the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (SCNPC)'s 2004 decision to rule out universal suffrage for electing the CE and the legislature in 2007 and 2008 respectively. The chapter then examines the development of new pro-democracy political parties in Hong Kong since 2003, their differing views about the controversial contents of the government's constitutional reform proposal as compared to the Democratic Party, and the different strategies used in the process of negotiation in 2010. Finally, the chapter discusses the prospects of Hong Kong's democracy movement under the influence of the CPG.
