TAIYUAN, Nov. 19 (Xinhua) — China’s top legislator has called for implementing Xi Jinping Thought on the Rule of Law in the work of people’s congresses and making contributions to building a modern socialist country.
Li Zhanshu, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), made the remarks during an inspection tour in north China’s Shanxi Province from Monday to Wednesday.
