China to instate non-communist party leaders in leading positions at state organs: spokesman

Some qualified leaders of non- communist parties are expected to step onto leading positions of state organs next year, said Wu Jianmin, spokesman of the annual session of China's top advisory body, in Beijing on Friday.

It is stipulated in the system of multi-party cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) that qualified leaders of non-communist parties take senior positions at state organs, Wu said at a press conference ahead of the fifth session of the Tenth National Committee of the CPPCC.

Authorities are working on relevant policies and it can be believed that some qualified non-communist party leaders will take leading positions of state organs when the new National People's Congress, the country's parliament, and the CPPCC National Committee are formed next year.

The CPPCC session is slated to open on Saturday afternoon in the Great Hall of the People and will last 12 days.

Jia Qinglin, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, will deliver a report on the work of the CPPCC National Committee's Standing Committee over the past year, while Huang Mengfu, vice chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, will report how the suggestions and proposals from CPPCC members were handled since the last session.
