The Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region serves as the constitutional document for the region. It advocates Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong. Any examination of life here needs to include how the Basic Law is implemented. Our reporter Hou Na talks to veteran Hong Kong politician Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai, who was the first President of the SAR’s Legislative Council, for her view.

Q1: During the past 15 years, one of the most important and most controversial issues might be the central government's power to interpret the Basic law. You are a member of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, how do you see this?

Q2: Give us some examples about how the Basic law was interpreted by the Standing Committee.

Q3: During the first couple of years, many Hong Kong people were not familiar with the Basic law, some even misinterpreted it, and how do you see the public awareness now?
