Chinese Gov’t Sets Up Blogs for Lawmakers -Audra Ang

From AP, via Forbes (link):

China’s government is trying to boost public interest in its figurehead parliament and its companion advisory body by setting up Web logs for members as they meet this week.

Called “bo ke” in Chinese, blogs are popular with young people despite strict censorship rules.

In one posting, National People’s Congress delegate Zhou Hongyu wrote that serving in the legislature is a way to “fulfill my duty and be a better deputy.”
