China's ruling Communist Party says it will introduce a series of measures to improve the country's legal system but will also strengthen the party's leadership position through the use of law.
The party on Tuesday released its full guidelines on how to govern the country in accordance with law, following the conclusion of a four-day meeting last week of its 205-member Central Committee. It had released a brief summary last Thursday.
The document says ensuring the party's leadership is the fundamental basis for ruling the country according to law.
The party said the country will have legal reviews of administrative decisions and will boost judicial independence to safeguard justice and increase public trust. The document also said China plans to introduce laws to curb corruption.
