Xi: Constitution is fundamental
Chinese President Xi Jinping called for enhanced public awareness of the Constitution and its implementation as the country observed its third National Constitution Day on Sunday. The Constitution contains the fundamental rules of the nation, and it must be adhered to while implementing the rule of law, Xi said in a message marking the opening of an exhibition hall in Hangzhou. The hall features documents on the first Constitution of the People’s Republic of China, which was drafted in Hangzhou and enacted in 1954. China’s top legislature adopted the current Constitution on Dec 4, 1982, based on the 1954 version.
