'Official members', unofficial members', ex-officio members'
I am studying the HK history. I don't understand the structure of the past councils. What is the difference between 'official members', 'unofficial members', 'ex-officio members'???
(Please explain it as simple as possible!)
To do_you_think_that_i_am_foolish , does that mean ex-officio is higher than official?

Well...let me try to explain it in a simpler way :P
As you know, the Executive Council (Exco) & the Legislative Council (Legco) were both under the Governor in the past political structure of HK.
The three types of officials metioned were actually under the Legco.
- appointed by governor
- top officials
- the financial secretary was included too
- invited by the govt
- received salaries from the govt
- British merchants
- not paid
- reflected opinions from HK citizens
**further information will to be added if necessary because I haven't got my textbk in hand. I typed this through reading my notes.
Hope it helps!
