Storyline


Chinese lawmakers Tuesday heard a draft supervision law and a reshuffle plan on the State Council, or the cabinet, at the fourth plenary meeting of the ongoing first session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC) in Beijing.

Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, chairman of the Central Military Commission, attended the meeting.

Premier Li Keqiang and other members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji and Han Zheng were present at the meeting.

When elaborating on the bill to the 13th NPC, Li Jianguo, vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the 12th NPC, described the new law as a major move of China's reform of supervisory system.

The law is aimed at enhancing the Party's leadership in anti-corruption campaigns and building a centralized, unified, authoritative and efficient supervisory network, Li said.

The new law also aims to legalize a unified system integrating state supervision and Party disciplinary inspection, Li said.

According to the bill, new supervisory commissions will be established at the national, provincial, city and county levels. Tasked to handle job-related crimes, they will independently exercise supervisory power, and not be subject to interference from the government, social organizations and individuals.

The commissions are entrusted to oversee state functionaries, investigate corruption cases such as bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power, impose administrative penalty on corrupt officials, and hand over criminal cases to prosecutors, according to the bill.

State Councilor Wang Yong briefed the lawmakers on the massive cabinet reshuffle plan.

There will be 26 ministries and commissions of the State Council after the reshuffle. Among the new entities are a ministry of natural resources, a ministry of veterans affairs, and a ministry of emergency management.

There will also be new administrations, such as an international development cooperation agency, a state immigration administration, and a banking and insurance regulatory commission. Compared with the current setup of cabinet administrations, the number of ministerial-level entities is reduced by eight and that of vice-ministerial-level entities by seven.

Wang said the reform focuses on the needs of development and meets the people's expectations, adding that the restructuring forms part of a broader plan by the Communist Party of China to deepen the reform of the Party and state institutions.

NPC deputies also adopted a decision on special committees of the 13th NPC, a voting method for their chairpersons, vice chairpersons and members, as well as a list of chairpersons, vice chairpersons and members of the NPC Constitution and Law Committee and the NPC Financial and Economic Affairs Committee.
