The full list of members of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) has been released.

Consisting of 2,158 names, the list was approved at the 24th session of the Standing Committee of the 12th CPPCC National Committee, which concluded Wednesday.

A total of 859 are from the Communist Party of China (CPC) or 39.8 percent of listed members.

All 56 ethnic groups in China are represented in the nation's top advisory body.

The average age of members is 55.9 years, and 1,971 of them are at least bachelor's degree holders, with 105 academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Authorized by the CPC Central Committee, You Quan, head of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Central Committee, addressed the session on Tuesday, saying that the nomination of members had upheld the leadership of the Party, as all members were nominated by Party organizations.

He said the process had been democratic as all the non-Communist parties, the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, and personalities with no party affiliation had been consulted.

All the nominees had gone through meticulous scrutiny in terms of their political stance, integrity of character and public image, You said. He said the list is highly representative, including government officials, entrepreneurs, military officers, personalities with no party affiliation, and representatives of minor ethnic groups and religions.
