Law Aims To Ensure Fair Grassroots Elections

From China Daily:

China is one step closer to outlining an improved law that will crackdown on vote-rigging in village elections, a civil affairs official said Sunday.

The Ministry of Civil Affairs has now completed its revision of the Organic Law of Village Committees, which clarifies a definition for all forms of vote-rigging and penalties for vote-lobbyers and bribe-receivers, said Wang Jinhua, deputy director of the department of basic governance and community of MCA.

The draft revision along with a draft revision on the Organic Law of Urban Residents Committees, which addresses similar issues concerning urban grassroots elections, have been submitted to the State Council for further revision, Wang told a press conference held at the Beijing International Media Center.
