The Hong Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee (HKPEOC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Toronto, created by Hongkongers for Hongkongers. The EOC’s mission is to helpHongkongers establish a political entity, the Hong Kong Parliament (HKP), through universal suffrage. This body will represent, unite, and empower Hongkongers globally.
It is important to note that the Electoral Organizing Committee is not the Hong Kong Parliament itself. Instead, it is an organization focused on facilitating the establishment of the Parliament by organizing the election process.
The Hong Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee (HKPEOC) is dedicated to the following:
To guarantee the fairness and transparency of the Hong Kong Parliament and its electoral process.
To support the elected representatives of the Hong Kong Parliament in fulfilling their duties and responsibilities.
To aid Hongkongers in creating the Hong Kong Parliament, where elected members collaborate to develop the Parliament’s objectives, plans, and strategies through established British Parliamentary procedures. The primary goal is to draft the New Constitutions. At this juncture, the EOC envisions the future HKP potentially accomplishing the following:
- Strengthening and empowering Hongkongers’ global presence by bolstering the legitimacy of the HKP.
- Establishing a transparent and inclusive system that ensures diverse Hongkonger voices are heard on the international stage.
- Reinforcing and empowering Hongkongers worldwide, thus promoting the identity of “Hongkonger” across the globe.
Why Do Hongkongers Need Hong Kong Parliament?
The United Nations (UN) required all colonies to develop self-government. At that time, Hong Kong was on the list.
The Chinese government wanted HK for its own economic growth. The UK government agreed to initiate HK's ownership transfer without doing any consultation or organizing any universal suffrage for the Hongkongers to decide their fate.
The dark age was brought to Hong Kong and its citizens. The UK and the Chinese government signed the Sino-British Declaration. Between the end of the 1970s and 1997, there was a huge outflow of Hongkongers to other countries to escape from the tyrannical CCP.
July 1, while China celebrated owning HK, the misery of Hongkongers had just started. Although China had promised “50-year no change”, Hong Kong only got 5 years of peace. Then the CCP began to force the puppet HKSAR government to gradually prepare to introduce laws that restrict freedom of assembly and speech.
The CCP ordered the HKSAR government to reform the electoral system in order to prevent the pro-democratic camp from entering the LegCo. This triggered a series of sit-in assemble, which eventually evolved into the Umbrella Movement that ended with armed forces clearing the road with tear gas.
Exploiting a murder case in Taiwan, the CCP enforced the passing of the extradition law in HK. That first triggered legal professionals' immediate response, serious declaration and warning. However, the HKSAR government turned a blind eye, stimulating millions of Hongkongers to march throughout the months.
Followed by tear gas, rubber bullets firing and armed force beating demonstrators on June 12 are series of badge-covered armed force violence, real bullet shooting and CCP-backed triads beating citizens. With surrounding and clearing universities with thousand shots of tear gas. Hong Kong was doomed, just as on June 4, 1989, in Beijing.
The revolution ended in pain and silence. Under the National Security Law, information about the revolution ceased to spread. News agencies were swept by police, opposition political parties were wiped out.
In 2022, a group of Hongkongers announced to organize an international election to form the HKP.

Self-determination drives the EOC’s mission to establish a political entity for Hongkongers, both inside and outside Hong Kong. Collaborators are determined to reclaim sovereignty, guided by a steadfast belief in universal values.
Since the 2019 Anti-Extradition Protests in Hong Kong, countless pro-democracy protesters have shown remarkable courage, persistence, and resilience against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Their sacrifices serve as a powerful reminder of the importance of protecting freedom and democracy from the CCP’s aggressive expansion.
Despite the escalating political repression and growing authoritarian control in Hong Kong following the introduction of the national security law, the Hong Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee maintains that:
- The numerous anonymous pro-democracy protesters fuel Hong Kong’s democratic movement.
- Their unwavering resolve has inspired Hongkongers everywhere to resist the oppressive CCP regime and fight for Hong Kong’s liberation, ensuring their sacrifices will not be in vain.
- The international community must recognize the threat the CCP poses to Hong Kong’s universal values.
- By employing democratic mechanisms, Hongkongers can rally democratic nations and their citizens to resist the CCP’s expanding ambitions, while defending freedom and democracy for all.
- A Hong Kong Parliament, established through “one person, one vote” elections, will gain international recognition and represent the people of Hong Kong in their fight for rights.
Vision and Mission
Through a transparent, democratic, and inclusive approach, the EOC seeks to empower and assist Hongkongers in forming the Hong Kong Parliament (HKP), while supporting elected members as they fulfil their roles and functions within this secure and democratic platform.
