China's top legislature decided Saturday to designate December 4 as national Constitution Day amid efforts to enhance its implementation and advance the rule of law.

Nationwide activities to promote the Constitution will be held on the day, according to a decision adopted at the bi-monthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress which ran from Monday to Saturday.

China's top legislature adopted the current Constitution on Dec. 4, 1982 based on a previous version enacted in 1954.
