From People’s Daily online:
China’s top legislature will deliberate on the draft law on emergency state this year as part of its legislation plan, a top legislator said Wednesday. Wu Bangguo, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, told the on-going annual session in a work report of the NPC Standing Committee that the top legislature has scores of draft laws for deliberation in 2005.
It will deliberate the draft laws on emergency state, anti-monopoly, civil servants, notary, governing offenses against public order, enterprise bankruptcy, among others. The NPC adopted amendments to China’s Constitution last year. The amendments included stipulation on the state of emergency.
