China's political advisory body opens annual session

China's political advisory body opens annual session”

The 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) on Wednesday convened a meeting of the chairman and vice chairpersons to discuss preparation for the first annual session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee.

China's Communist Party has long claimed sovereignty over the self-governing island of Taiwan - and a degree of authority over all ethnic Chinese, regardless of nationality - but its attitude toward the Chinese diaspora has been a source of growing friction with foreign governments over the past year.

Yu said that during the past five years, the CPPCC had always upheld the Communist Party of China leadership, worked under the themes of unity and democracy, and demonstrated the strong and distinctive features of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

"We will focus our advice and efforts on the main issues in securing a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and embarking on a journey to fully build a modern socialist China", Yu said.

He said he was seeking to "mobilize all the sons and daughters of (ethnic Chinese) to work together for the greater national interests and the realization of the Chinese Dream", referring to Xi's nationalist vision of China as the pre-eminent global power.

CPPCC delegates told reporters on the sidelines of the meeting that they support the constitutional changes proposed by the CCP central committee, including a controversial one to abolish the two five-year term limits of the President and Vice-President.

The 13-day event runs nearly in parallel with the annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's national legislature, which is set to start Monday.

In a report on proposals, Wan Gang, vice chairperson of the 12th CPPCC National Committee, said over the past five years, a total of 29,378 proposals had been submitted by the CPPCC National Committee members, and 99 percent of them had been handled up to February 20 this year.

Xi Jinping arrives at the CPPCC on March 3.
