China Pictorial (English) - - Features -

In 1982, the Con­sti­tu­tion was amended ex­ten­sively and ap­proved by the Fifth Ses­sion of the Fifth Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress. The amend­ment stated that the ba­sic task of the na­tion in the years to come would be to fo­cus its ef­fort on so­cial­ist mod­ern­iza­tion, es­pe­cially eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. It also stated that all ci­ti­zens in China are equal be­fore the law and that no or­ga­ni­za­tion or in­di­vid­ual is priv­i­leged above the Con­sti­tu­tion and laws.
