The Seventh Legislative Council of Hong Kong is the current meeting of the legislative branch of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. It is scheduled to meet in the Legislative Council Complex, from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2025, overlapping the six months of Carrie Lam as the fifth term of the Chief Executive and the sixth term of Chief Executive.
