Lawyers Play Bigger Role In China’s Parliament

From Xinhua:

The number of lawyers participating in China’s current term of parliament and top political advisory body reached 22, an increase of 80 percent over the previous term, said Yu Ning, chairman of the All China Lawyers Association (ACLA).

“The increase is in line with the development of modern society and a result of China’s progress in building a society ruled by law,” Yu said.

National legislators and advisors include deputies to the National People’s Congress (NPC) and members of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
