BEIJING - Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, has stressed promoting the rule of law in an all-around manner.

Xi called for scientific legislation, strict law enforcement, judicial justice and everyone in the country abiding by the law, while presiding on Saturday over a seminar of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

A socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics, with the Constitution as the "commander" has taken shape in the country, and on the whole, there are laws to follow in every respect of society, Xi noted.

"This is a significant achievement that we have scored," he said.

Xi required that legislative planning be improved to highlight priorities and combine the making, amendment and annulment of laws.

The legislative mechanism and procedures should be enhanced, involving increased and orderly participation from the public and listening to the opinions of all parties, Xi said.

"In this way, the laws will accurately reflect the demands in socio-economic development and better coordinate interest-based relationships," he added.
