BEIJING - Chinese top legislature on Monday deliberated a draft decision on piloting supervisory system reform in Beijing and the provinces of Shanxi and Zhejiang.

The draft was submitted for review by legislators at the bimonthly session of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, which runs from Monday to Sunday.

According to the draft, new supervision committees will be established in the three areas to produce an integrated supervision system that will be more authoritative and efficient.

The new supervision committee will integrate the supervision departments, the corruption prevention department, as well as People's Procuratorate departments for handling bribery and dereliction of duty cases or prevention of duty-related crimes, according to the draft.

All public servants that exercise public power will be supervised by the new committee, the draft says. It confers on the committee the power to supervise, investigate and hand out punishment.

Explaining the draft to lawmakers, Li Jianguo, vice chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, said deepening supervisory system reform is a major issue in the country's political life and is of great and far-reaching importance for strengthening the Party's leadership, deepening reform and advancing rule of law.
