BEIJING, March 19 (Xinhua) -- The Standing Committee of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature, on Tuesday appointed nine new deputy secretary-generals.
Among them, Li Fei was also appointed the new director of both the Standing Committee's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) Basic Law Committee and its Macao SAR Basic Law Committee, replacing Qiao Xiaoyang.
The 12th NPC Standing Committee convened its first meeting on Tuesday.
Last week's plenary meeting of the first session of the 12th NPC elected Wang Chen as secretary-general of the NPC Standing Committee.
Tuesday's meeting also voted and decided that Wan Exiang, a newly elected vice chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, will no longer hold his post as a justice and vice president of the Supreme People's Court.
