BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- The 8,043 suggestions Chinese legislators made at the annual session of the nation's top legislature in March have received feedback, a report said Wednesday.

These suggestions have been given to 177 government departments and public institutions, said He Yehui, vice secretary general of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), whose bimonthly session is running from Dec. 26 to 31.

These departments and institutions have solved or are planning to deal with 77.2 percent of all these suggestions, and have achieved positive effects in boosting development and improving people's livelihoods, He said in a report to the session attended by 134 NPC Standing Committee members, which included Chairman Wu Bangguo.

In addition, the NPC committees discussed 566 motions raised by legislators at the annual session in March.

According to the Chinese Constitution, NPC deputies and members of the NPC Standing Committee can submit motions and proposals that are within the respective functions and powers of the NPC and its Standing Committee.

A motion will be legally binding when it is adopted while a proposal is not.

According to the Organic Law of the NPC and the NPC's rules for the discharge of its duties, a motion can be raised by the presidium of the NPC, the NPC Standing Committee, special committees of the NPC, the State Council, the Supreme People's Court, the Supreme People's Procuratorate, a provincial-level delegation (of deputies) to the NPC, or a group of at least 30 NPC deputies.
