An editorial from a leading Chinese newspaper to be published Monday calls on the top legislature to faithfully reflect people's will in a bid to promote the country's progress.
The People's Daily, the flagship newspaper of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC), calls on the National People's Congress (NPC) and its Standing Committee to make further progress in improving the socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics, and to faithfully reflect the people's will and make it become the state will through legal procedures.
The editorial coincides with the 5th session of the 11th NPC, which will kick off Monday. Almost 3,000 deputies from all over the country will discuss major issues that China confronts in the session slated to conclude on March 14.
The editorial also calls on the NPC and its Standing Committee to make deputies better serve the people, and promote exchanges with foreign countries, and contribute to economic development, social harmony and stability, in a bid to welcome the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China scheduled later this year.
The editorial recalls the country's major achievements in the past year, and elaborates on the contributions of the NPC and its Standing Committee.
