PHOTO XINHUA BEIJING - The amendment to the charter of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference CPPCC and the amended charter were released on Saturday by the Xinhua News Agency.
The amendment was approved at the first session of the 14th National Committee of the CPPCC, which was held from March 4 to 11.
The charter contains six chapters with around 10,000 Chinese characters.
A comparison table of the original and amended versions of the charter was also released.
The historical experience has shown that only by adapting to new circumstances, enriching its content and setting new standards, the CPPCC charter can better play its role and advance the development of the cause of the CPPCC, said an official with the National Committee of the CPPCC on Saturday.
Since its general framework and main content was nailed down in 1982, the CPPCC charter has undergone five amendments in 1994, 2000, 2004 and 2023, respectively.
