The central judicial and legislative authorities will dispatch representatives to provinces or cities who send large numbers of petitioners to Beijing, according to a recent report from the Xinhua news agency.

The move will make it easier for people with complaints about local conditions and officials to request help from higher authorities in the central government.

The teams from the central government will work to resolve the problems in accordance with local judicial procedures and regulations.
