What duties do the selected ones have that the ex officio President doesn’t?

They do have the possibility of becoming Departmental Members - though not the obligation to.  It actually used to be expected of them - at one time, not so long ago, every Department would have a least one MLC Member who would be responsible for dealing with any legislation for that Department going through LegCo.  The idea idea that LegCo is primarily a scrutinising body and its members don't take up Departmental posts is a very recent invention - more of less in the last five years.
