Chairman of the Standing Committee of the

National People’s Congress


Fellow Deputies,

On behalf of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), I now present to you this report on the work of the Standing Committee for your deliberation.

Major Work of the Past Year

In 2014, under the firm leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) with Comrade Xi Jinping as General Secretary, the Standing Committee has been comprehensively implementing the guidelines of the 18th National Party Congress and the third and fourth plenary sessions of the 18th CPC Central Committee; following the guidance of Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thought of Three Represents, and the Scientific Outlook on Development; and fully putting into practice the guiding principles from General Secretary Xi Jinping’s major speeches. We have been focusing on the overall work of the Party and country as we have performed our functions and powers in accordance with the law, fully playing our role as the country’s highest organ of state power and conscientiously working to ensure the accomplishment of all our tasks as set forth by the Second Session of the 12th NPC. As a result, we have made new progress and achievements in all our work.

I. We have been upholding the leadership of the CPC and have enhanced our confidence in the system of people’s congresses.

The leadership of the Party is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics. In adhering to and improving the system of people’s congresses, we must unwaveringly uphold the Party’s leadership and strengthen our confidence in the system. We must improve the system on the basis of upholding the Party’s leadership and develop it through practice to ensure it advances with the times.

1. We have been upholding the Party’s leadership throughout every process and aspect of the work of the NPC.

In upholding the Party’s leadership, we must first and foremost uphold the centralized leadership of the CPC Central Committee. In carrying out the work of the NPC, we must resolutely implement the Party’s line, principles, policies, decisions, and plans; work actively to make sure our thinking, our actions, and our politics all maintain a high degree of unity with the Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as General Secretary; and conscientiously safeguard the authority of the Central Committee.

Over the past year, we have armed ourselves with the Party’s basic theories and used them as a guide in our practice and our work, deepened our study and implementation of the guiding principles from General Secretary Xi Jinping’s major speeches, and strengthened the Standing Committee both theoretically and politically. These efforts have enabled us to align our thinking and action with the guidelines of the Central Committee, keeping us firmly heading in the right political direction.

Strictly adhering to the strategic arrangements set forth by the Central Committee, we made coordinated plans that cover all aspects and major activities in the work of the NPC, including legislation, oversight, decision making, and the work regarding deputies, and ensured that all major policies, plans, and measures of the Central Committee were implemented.

We improved the system of requesting instructions and submitting reports. For major issues and tasks in the NPC’s work, the Leading Party Members’ Group of the Standing Committee promptly requested instructions from and submitted reports to the CPC Central Committee, and we carried out relevant work in accordance with the law and procedures. Upholding the Party’s leadership over people’s congresses is for ensuring that the Party can exercise leadership over the state and society through organs of political power.
