Lawmakers', political advisors' microblog highlights


08:30, March 14, 2012

BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) -- Amid China's microblog boom, a growing number of national lawmakers and political advisors have opened verified real-name microblogs to stay in touch with the country's estimated 260 million microbloggers.

The following passages are highlights from their microblogs, which are most active during the annual sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC), the top legislature, and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, the top political advisory body. The CPPCC closed its annual session Tuesday.

----Ge Jianxiong, a political advisor from Shanghai, posted this after the CPPCC concluded its annual session:

"The education ministry has not responded to my inquiry into the incident where contents of the entrance exam to postgraduate schools were leaked beforehand. When I made the inquiry before him, Education Minister Yuan said results of the ongoing investigation into the incident would not be made public until it's complete. I think this may be the reason. But my microblog will still be open."

(Ge confronted Yuan in a panel discussion during the session, demanding Yuan fully investigate the incident, punish those responsible, and ensure fairness in exams. Yuan admitted 5,000 people were caught cheating and vowed lawful punishment for anyone responsible in the ministry.)

----Wang Hui, an NPC deputy from Shaanxi province, said this as the closing of the NPC session approaches on Wednesday:

"The NPC session will end tomorrow. Reviewing the past five years of my life as a deputy, all sorts of feelings are welling up in my mind. As democracy and the rule of law advances, people have grown increasingly conscious of their rights, and deputies must forward their demands to the the government. Deputies represent responsibility and the true expectations of the people. The deputies do not have to be experts in defending rights, but they must genuinely speak for the people and oversee the government on their behalf."

----Wang Min, a political advisor from Tsinghua University, was impressed:

"The political resolution had been passed today. Its final version took over 10 suggestions for revision we made at yesterday's panel discussions, making huge improvement of the style of writing. Great."
