All the 90 members of the seventh-term Legislative Council (LegCo) of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region had been elected by Monday morning.

The members were elected by the Election Committee constituency (40 seats), functional constituencies (30 seats), and geographical constituencies (20 seats) after over 1.35 million people voted on Sunday.

The Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR on Monday hailed the successful election in an online statement released after election results were unveiled.

Calling the election a successful practice of democracy with Hong Kong characteristics, the office said the HKSAR's seventh-term LegCo election has once again demonstrated the strengths and advantages of the improved electoral system and is a further implementation of the principle of "patriots administering Hong Kong."

The new LegCo will completely be free of the political quagmire of "mutual destruction" and "filibustering," give full play to the advantages of the executive-led system and realize the healthy interaction between the executive authorities and the legislature, thus opening a new chapter of good governance for Hong Kong, the statement said.

The Chief Executive in Council, in accordance with the Legislative Council Ordinance, has specified January 1, 2022 as the commencement date of the seventh-term LegCo of the HKSAR.

The term of office of the LegCo is four years.
