The following post by He Bing (何兵), deputy director of the School of Law at China University of Politics and Law, was deleted from Sina Weibo sometime before 2:16pm Hong Kong time today, February 27, 2012. He Bing currently has more than 156,000 followers, according to numbers from Sina Weibo. [More on deleted posts at the WeiboScope Search, by the Journalism and Media Studies Centre].
He Bing’s post dealt with the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s legislature and nominal highest state body, which meets in full session just once a year. The Standing Committee of the NPC went into session in Beijing today. The full session of the annual NPC will begin on March 5.
3,000 National People’s Congress (NPC) delegates meet, something unlike anything seen anywhere else in the world. Great forces are mustered, wasting the wealth of the people. How is it that what is clearly a big mistake isn’t reformed? I suggest collapsing the whole NPC into the standing committee [of the NPC), shrinking it down to about 300-500 people. This is a basic precondition of the normal operation of the National People’s Congress.
