BEIJING, March 2 (Xinhua) -- China's political reform must be made under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and within the framework of socialism with Chinese characteristics, a spokesman said Friday.

Zhao Qizheng, spokesman for the annual session of the National Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made the remarks at a press conference ahead of the top political advisory body's annual session.

Since the country adopted the reform and opening up, political and economic reforms have not been completely separated from each other, otherwise economic reform would not have progressed so smoothly, said Zhao.

Political advisors have talked a lot about the country's political reform, but it is up to the CPC Central Committee and the State Council to work on the final policies, he said.

China's political reform will be implemented only after careful deliberation and seeking opinions from all sectors, Zhao said.

"I believe you will be able to see progress in China's political reform," the spokesman said.
