The Communist Party of China (CPC) will set up a central leading group for advancing law-based governance in all areas, Xi Jinping said Wednesday while delivering a report at the opening session of the 19th CPC National Congress.[Special Coverage]
The move is aimed at exercising unified leadership over the initiative to build rule of law in China, he said.
Advancing law-based governance in all fields is a profound revolution in China's governance, Xi said.
The CPC must promote the rule of law to ensure sound lawmaking, strict law enforcement, impartial administration of justice, and the observance of law by everyone, Xi said.
The fourth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee in 2014 adopted a decision to comprehensively advance the rule of law.
