State Councilor Wang Yong, on March 7, joined a panel discussion with deputies from Shandong province to the 13th National People’s Congress to discuss a draft amendment to the Constitution.
He said the draft amendment mirrored the significant ground-breaking achievements in theories, practice, and institutions that China had obtained since the 18th CPC National Congress.
Meanwhile, with this amendment in place, Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era will mark its position as the guidance for development in the fundamental laws. Additionally, alterations were also made in the stipulations regarding the tenure of the president.
He said he entirely agreed with the draft amendment.
Wang also pressed for an all-around comprehension and implementation of this draft amendment to the Constitution to ensure the undertakings of the country as well as the CPC will forge ahead on the right track.
