High hopes

Analysts have expressed high hopes for this year's NPC session, which is scheduled to begin on Sunday, when deputies are expected to elect the nation's president and vice-president, and decide on the choice of premier of the State Council upon nomination by the president.

According to the Constitution, the deputies are also expected to choose vice-premiers, state councilors, ministers and the auditor-general and secretary-general of the State Council upon nomination by the premier.

Ma Liang, a professor of public administration at Renmin University of China, said this year's annual legislative session comes at a pivotal time following the 20th CPC National Congress as the nation embarks on its path to modernization.

The oath of office taken by top State leaders could draw even more public attention as a new government is unveiled, he said.

"It will be an occasion to strengthen legal awareness among officials and the public, and reaffirms China's commitment to the rule of law," Ma added.
