Hongkong Post today (November 20) announced that a set of special stamps entitled "Our Legislative Council" will be released for sale with associated philatelic products on December 5 (Thursday).
Under the Basic Law, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is vested with legislative power, and the Legislative Council (LegCo) is the legislature of the HKSAR. The functions of LegCo include enacting laws, examining and approving public expenditure, and monitoring the Government's performance. Hongkong Post is issuing a set of four stamps with the theme of "Our Legislative Council", featuring the old LegCo Building and the new LegCo Complex, the Chamber of the new LegCo Complex and the President's chair in the old LegCo Building, to enhance the public's understanding of LegCo.

The stamps and associated philatelic products will be displayed at the General Post Office, Tsim Sha Tsui Post Office, Tsuen Wan Post Office, Sha Tin Central Post Office and Tuen Mun Central Post Office from the same day.
