Delegates put forward proposals for political and social change at congress event
Delegates at China’s annual “two sessions” meeting have submitted proposals ranging from incorporating death education in schools to extending the lunar new year holiday by a few days, and stripping the constitution of all mentions of “family planning”, the country’s birth-limiting policies.
Over the last two weeks, more than 8,000 proposals were made to the national people’s congress (NPC), China’s highest legislative body, according to its secretariat. Members of the Chinese people’s political consultative conference, which convenes at the same time in the second of the two sessions, also put forward ideas.
