The 11th Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) attached great importance to the military legislation and has actively promoted the formulation and revision of military laws, according to a person in charge from the Legal Affairs Bureau of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the People's Republic of China on March 8, 2013.
During its term of five years, the 11th Standing Committee of the NPC has introduced six important military laws which play an important role in improving the military legislative system with Chinese characteristics, promoting scientific development of national defense and the military, and supporting the troop units to fulfill missions effectively.
The Law of the People's Republic of China on the People's Armed Police Force was formulated in 2009, which provides explicit legal basis for the People's Armed Police Force to carry out security tasks. The National Defense Mobilization Law of the People's Republic of China was formulated in 2010, which fills in the gap in the field of China's national defense mobilization. The Reserve Officers Law of the People's Republic of China was revised in 2010, providing more legal support for the construction of national defense reserve force. The Servicemen's Insurance Law of the People's Republic of China was formulated in 2011, effectively protecting and safeguarding the servicemen's interests. The Military Service Law was revised in 2012, adjusting and improving the basic system of military service. The Measures of the Chinese People's Liberation Army on Selecting Deputies to the National People's Congress and Various Levels of People's Congress above County Level was revised in 2012, ensuring the servicemen's rights for participating in national political activities and democratic elections by law.
According to the person in charge, the next five years is going to be an important historical period for improving the socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics during which the military legislation tasks remain arduous. A number of military laws including the Law on the Protection of Military Installations (revised) will be submitted to the 12th National People's Congress and its standing committee for deliberation. The introduction of these military laws will definitely provide more complete and reliable legal basis for accelerating the modernization construction of national defense and the military.
